The right human resources software platform lets HR professionals begin teaching new employees about their company before they even walk in for their first day.
With the US unemployment rate down to 4.1 percent, the war for talent is on. Companies today need to create a different kind of work experience for their top brand ambassadors their employees and focusing on your employer brand in order to improve your customer brand is now recognized as a best practice in most industries.
Mobile communication and new technologies are a huge part of this process. And with employees in every role eager to use their smartphones more at work, the use of apps in the workplace is steadily rising. Each employee within an organization plays different roles and has various responsibilities. And hence not all employee onboarding is equal. A remote worker does not need all of the same information that an employee who works in the office does.
A new Senior VP probably needs to know more about the inner workings of the company than a Project Manager does. Then why are most onboarding programs standardized and tedious? The short answer is because the existing employee onboarding programs do not allow for easy delivery of customization depending on various employees. There was no way to accomplish this. There is now! Learn more about Flock and how we can help improve your overall employee experience right from hire to retire.
Why is there a need to streamline and reduce the current time spent on going through all the tedious paperwork and hassles of never-ending HR activities?
According to the US Department of Labor and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, during an average year, there are more than 5 million newly hired American adults (18+) that have to undergo onboarding. The on-boarding process is an exceedingly important business operation. Aside from the interview/hiring process, it is the first time employees get to interact and engage with all facets of the business. From meeting new people around the office to getting set-up with the HR and tech support departments, the process can either make or break a new hires perception in the company.
In a recent Bersin by Deloitte study, it was found that:
4% of new employees quit after a disastrous first day
22% of employee turnover occurs in the first 45 days
79% of business leaders said onboarding is an urgent priority.
Businesses of every size are impacted by the need for better hiring practices, talent management, employee onboarding, benefits management, employee engagement and the software industry itself has evolved to meet these demands.
