In this blog we discuss the benefis of handling your onboarding digitally.
Savvy HR professionals have been refining the onboarding process for several years now and the technology available for candidates and hiring managers to deliver a smooth onboarding experience is becoming more sophisticated with every update.
Most line managers and recruiters have had the unwelcome experience of a candidate taking another role at the eleventh hour or leaving unexpectedly after weeks of training and investment.
A recent survey showed that of the 2,000 questioned who have moved jobs in the last 3 years, over 69% of these left a job within a year of starting it and 20% of those blamed poor onboarding for their departure.

It’s no longer just a case of popping a contract and handbook in the post. In fact, the entire experience can now be managed digitally, making it quicker and easier for both employer and new employees to build rapport and understanding.
