Reduce time to productivity, improve employee retention with onboarding

Onboarding is a critical part of a strategic talent management program, but it is often overlooked by busy managers who believe that it’s human resources’ responsibility. With no clear owner, high complexity, and high stakes, the on boarding process often leaves the new hires feeling anxious and unappreciated. This can lead to first-year turnover, less-than-engaged employees, and longer times to productivity/contribution.

What’s needed is an on boarding solution that is easy, automatic, and personal to lay the groundwork for a productive and engaged member of your team. It requires a solution that incorporates the latest onboarding best practices, and emphasizes employee socialization.

SuccessFactors Onboarding helps you consistently and efficiently convert new hires into engaged, empowered, productive employees by:

  • Guiding the HR department, the hiring manager, and the new hire in a meaningful way though the steps of the onboarding process
  • Connecting new hires with the right people and relevant content even before they start
  • Developing new hires quickly, turning them into productive employees and enabling them to begin contributing in record time

With SuccessFactors Onboarding, you get:

  • Improved process efficiency and compliance
  • Faster time to contribution
  • Better employee engagement and retention

A fresh approach to onboarding

What makes SuccessFactors Onboarding unique is the more strategic approach to onboarding. SuccessFactors takes the long view that onboarding is a key starting point to fully integrated talent management and sets the stage for employee success in every area. In addition to a robust set of workflow automation tools, which improve compliance, SuccessFactors Onboarding leverages the SuccessFactors platform to connect the process to all the other talent processes, such as learning (formal and informal), goal setting, recruiting and core HR. Instead of being another isolated HR program, on boarding becomes the center of the talent strategy, empowering new hires to ramp up quickly and contribute to corporate goals sooner.

In addition to the traditional on boarding functionality, such as forms and task management, SuccessFactors Onboarding also provides features that are entirely focused on helping the new hire feel connected and informed from the start. By giving new hires the ability to meet and interact virtually with their peers even before the first day, SuccessFactors improves employee engagement and ultimately, new hire retention.
