You never get a second chance to make a first impression as an employer! As an employer, it’s vital that you get people work-ready, inducted into your company culture and connected to the team. In fact “86% of new hires decide to stay or leave a company within their first six months and new employees are 69% more likely to stay longer than three years if they experience well-structured onboarding”(Willyerd 2012). The ultimate goal is to ensure business objectives are met and employee requirements are satisfied.
YOUniverse is the HR platform that fosters an engaging induction for new employees. By personalising the onboarding experience, it encourages and nurtures a “company first” attitude from “hire” to “retire”. The social tools millennials are familiar with are provided out of the box to help them learn and grow in their role: “…imagine being able to join an active online community of other new hires — those already in the company and those about to join as well. In this private community, new hires can connect, post pictures or videos, talk about hobbies, get tips and hints from recent hires already in the company, and form connections with dozens of people before even showing up for day one. “ (Willyerd 2012). YOUniverse gets the documentation and employment details out of the way, and then engages them with their community.
It’s about adding a personal touch. It’s the “you” in “YOUniverse”!
