New employees make a flying start at Plek. From their first working day (or earlier if desired) they go through a versatile, phased onboarding program. HR departments can create these programs themselves and monitor the progress of newcomers.
The importance of good onboarding
The figures are shocking: 17% of new employees leave within three months - and some even in the first week. With properly structured onboarding, it is 58% more likely that employees will be retained after three years.
Plek offers a flexible program manager in which you can create, schedule and change the various onboarding programs and steps yourself. Of course, we will gladly assist you with that. HR managers can track the progress of onboarders within a dashboard. Programs can include tasks to be checked or questions when answered are then published on a group's timeline.
Onboarding as part of the employee journey
We believe that good onboarding does not stop after a few months. Employees want to continue to develop and innovate, so onboarding must merge seamlessly with learning and participation. That is why we bring these parts together at Plek. Moreover, this ensures that the social intranet or engagement platform is the starting point where new employees can look for information, share knowledge and make connections.
