Creating a templated and reusable induction process ensures all new hires receive the same standard of onboarding. It ensures consistency of core messaging, employer brand and must-do onboarding activities, enabling you to establish a minimum standard that applies to all teams.
Our Journey template in Onboarding Journey’s helps you do just that, while also allowing for a degree of customisation through ‘Streams’ – a feature that makes personalising and adapting the onboarding experience according to team or location easy.
After all, every new hire experience should be as unique as the individual. Your employees deserve (and expect) the time and resources you invest in their onboarding to make them feel special throughout their journey.
That’s why we’ve got Onboarding Journeys
Onboarding Journeys allow you to change the content and timing of your standard onboarding journey for each new hire.
Examples of when to use Personalised Journeys:
Tailor the first-day schedule
Rather than simply providing an overview of what the first day might look like for new hires, Journeys allows you to add information that’s specific to your new hire when they start, such as catch-up times with their manager and peers, and the names and details of people they’ll be meeting with.
Create tasks or content specific to the new hire
Personalised Journeys allow you to provide information uniquely applicable to your new hire. For example, you might include travel itineraries for fly-in workers or a link to a private cloud folder containing additional ‘nice to know’ information about their role, their team, and the company.
Ensure team leaders are aware of special new hire requirements
A new hire begins on Monday and has been asked about dietary requirements. Let the team leader know in advance within his ‘task’ that they are to “take new hire out to lunch on their first day”.
Speed it up – they’re starting tomorrow!
Sometimes your soon-to-be-employee can start their role sooner than the standard four weeks’ time; in some cases, it may be as early as next week, which can throw your carefully timed induction schedule out the window. HROnboard’s Onboarding Journeys can help in this scenario, allowing you to remove content and tasks that are no longer applicable to speedy starters, and to customise the delivery dates of other information that suits the circumstances.
Of course, there are plenty of reasons why you may need to tweak the standard journey. Included on the new hire’s Journey page are some visual references to help you manage and track these changes.
