Over 80% of new employees decide to keep or change their jobs within the first 6 months from being hired, and 1 out of 4 of these persons leave already in the first year of work. An unstructured or incomplete onboarding process may convince new employees to reconsider their decision to join the organisation at the time when they should be the most enthusiastic and motivated.

Owing to the digitalisation of this process, new employees will adapt easier, achieve the expected level of working productivity faster and meet the specified business objectives more efficiently, at the same time enjoying the sense of belonging to the organisation from the very first day of work.

SuccessFactors Onboarding is an effective solution to increase the commitment and performance of the personnel. It provides recruitment managers with specific instructions, socialisation functions and extensive employee profile support functions. From the employee’s perspective, at all stages of the process: from being greeted by the superior through the company procedures to the establishment of good relationships with the co-workers.

The SuccessFactors Onboarding system is also distinguished by the fact that it enables strategic planning of the induction of new employees so that they are regularly informed and feel a bond with the organisation from the get-go.

SuccessFactors Onboarding facilitates job induction using three unique methods:

  • It organises the entire process step by step, involving the right people at the right time to optimise the time and costs of personnel induction.
  • It binds people and groups of employees together, providing them with the necessary resources and increasing their commitment and retention.
  • The system creates close ties between the Onboarding process and the other Talent Management processes to ensure consistency and enable control of the entire process.

 The SuccessFactors Onboarding system covers all aspects of the employee lifecycle in the organisation, including crossboarding, i.e., the organisational re-assignment of the employee within the company, or offboarding, providing intuitive access to dedicated tools when the employment is terminated.
