Before adopting Workleap Onboarding, Logient's onboarding process was comprehensive but faced hurdles navigating the complexities, especially in a distributed workforce. Julie Teboul, Logient's Employee Experience Director, highlighted the challenges:
- Time-consuming and extensive welcome meetings with HR
The traditional HR welcome meetings were demanding for newcomers and the HR team: much information (various policies, benefits, documentation) was shared in a short timeframe, and then afterward, the team was swamped with the same questions from employees—because it was easier to get clarification directly than finding specific information in a long employee handbook.
- Bulks of internal documentation spread across platforms
Not only were new hires finding it difficult to know exactly what is documented and where it is stored, but current employees were feeling the pain, too. With internal documentation scattered across multiple platforms, everyone desperately needed a central location as a go-to.
- Manual scheduling of first meetings
For every new hire, an HR advisor had to go through a checklist individually and book meetings and mandatory training with new teams. The process was tedious and time-consuming.
- Specific onboarding needs varied across teams
The diverse onboarding needs across teams, ranging from specific documentation to distinct work processes, highlighted the necessity for a more tailored and efficient approach.
Confronted with these challenges, Logient set out to explore solutions to overcome these blockers and optimize the efficiency of their onboarding process. In this pursuit, the organization turned to Workleap Onboarding, recognizing its potential to address existing hurdles and redefine and elevate the standard of onboarding excellence and its impact on the entire employee journey.
Logient had specific goals to enhance their onboarding experience:
- Upgrade the way information and policies are shared
Ditch the hefty employee handbook and instead present policies through recordings, breaking down information by theme for easier understanding.
- Standardize training
Provide video explanations of tools by in-house specialists, eliminating the need for their continuous involvement every time a new employee is hired.
- Redirect HR meetings toward human connection and trust-building
Shift focus to getting to know the new hire during those first HR meetings, fostering trust and personal connections rather than repetitive administrative sessions.
- Centralize company documentation for easy accessibility
Make relevant company documentation more accessible by centralizing links on a single platform, organized by job title and team.
- Simplify service offering
Use Workleap Onboarding to make a complex and multi-faceted service offering more accessible, efficiently summarizing team expertise and customer solutions for newcomers.
