Why take new employee onboarding digital?
When we think about the cost of hiring a new employee, we tend to think about the recruitment cost (advertising, interviewing & testing) along with getting the new employee ready for their new job (training and orientation). There is one area that many organisations fail to consider; the administration costs associated with new employee onboarding.
Your average small to medium size business hiring 100 employees each year generates an additional manual processing time of approximately 800 hrs/year adding up to a cost in excess of $20k per annum (get in touch with us for the full ROI document).

In the meantime, check out our video on Cultural Navigation.
