Before implementing Workleap Onboarding, Certus faced significant challenges in the onboarding process. There was a lack of a clear path and understanding of what was required for a new hire's integration within their team and the company. While compliance-related tasks were in place, they were not effectively communicated to new hires. The main issue was communication, which hindered a smooth onboarding experience.
New hires encountered various pain points during the onboarding process before Workleap Onboarding. They were unclear about what was expected from them on their first day and throughout their first week. This ambiguity extended to aspects like equipment setup, HR benefits meetings, manager introductions, and the overall structure of the first week. Managers also grappled with understanding the timeline for HR tasks and the transition of new hires into their roles.
Certus set clear objectives for integrating Workleap Onboarding into their onboarding process. Their primary goals included improving communication and streamlining the onboarding process for all new hires and hiring managers. The aim was to provide a consistent and clear onboarding experience, regardless of the role within Certus.
The pre-built onboarding templates of Workleap Onboarding were very helpful in providing guidance and establishing a solid foundation for our upcoming onboarding plans. And because they are reusable, it facilitated the process a lot when you are hiring a lot of people at the same time.
