Culture is an essential factor in the culmination of all people’s behavior. The organizational culture stands out as a strategic resource in the search for competitiveness. The way each team member adopts and translates the internal culture of a company has an impact on the team’s development.
The onboarding process works as a welcoming ceremony to the company. It starts even before the employee is hired and spans from 3 to 6 months. This is where the employee understands the organization, the culture, and the company policies, and receives training and information that will guide them in the years to come.
Choosing the right software for employee onboarding directly affects the internal culture. Onboarding is not a task that can be accomplished in a matter of days, so it is important to choose flexible and structured software that leads to higher retention. An important aspect of onboarding software is that the most important information is made easily accessible and is delivered at the right time.
You must be able to share relevant content at the right time and fit your employee’s role. Onboardings are different for each role, workflow and calendars are tools that can help improve the process.
A simple and intuitive interface is game-changing from a new hire perspective, the process needs to be natural, and easy where you can introduce the company’s culture early on, making the goals aligned and reachable.
While paperless form-filling is important, automation and technologies like gamification can engage and lead to better results for the new hires, going beyond and creating strategies that make the employee engage, learn and perform more while there are working. With regard to software implementation, the process should be easy, painless, and affordable.
Engaging and retaining new hires has been a challenge for companies for a long time. Now, imagine the competitive advantage you will gain if you can reduce the first year’s turnover.
