Strategic onboarding improves employee engagement and long term retention
When you do onboarding right, you keep people on board longer. SilkRoad’s strategic onboarding software lets you go beyond paperwork and payroll to easily create personalized onboarding journeys – even global multi-regional ones – that seal the deal for your candidates and engage them beyond the first weeks, months and year through every career transition.
Your business and your workforce doesn’t fit easily into a one-size-fits-all box. Your onboarding experiences certainly shouldn’t. Easily scale and personalize consistent, branded onboarding experiences for individuals by role, geography, team, division, language or other factors with targeted workflows that make it all manageable globally, while keeping localization almost one to one.
Creating intentional onboarding journeys by role, team, location, language and other characteristics means better engagement and retention. Our onboarding software eliminates the first week fire-hose information dump. Ensure your journeys include goal setting, feedback and surveys, along with the tasks you need every new joiner to understand about your unique organization.
Make it easy for your candidate to say "Yes." Create and manage hundreds of engaging, personalized offer letters using automated, dynamic content aligned to your brand and recruiting message. Secure fast e-signatures from any device – even an Xbox.
Preboarding puts every new joiner on the road to day-one productivity. Continue the momentum from the offer all the way to day one. Deliver the right content at the right time in a fully branded employer portal, which emphasizes your culture and engagement. Ensure compliance for W-4 or I-9, benefits, payroll, etc. by location, state or country with built-in integration and automation.
Managers have a lot at stake during the first months of the new hire's experience. They play a critical role in new hire and employee satisfaction. Easily create a complete, personalized hiring manager journey - from job requisition and other tasks and ensure there are check in points for new joiners, goal setting meetings and other activities that help connect people to business outcomes.
Know whether your onboarding process is on track with role-based dashboards. Use the built in assessment pulse surveys to take a new hire temperature at any point in the process. Monitor task completion for new hires, managers, IT, HR and other teams engaged in your new hire process. You get prepackaged analytics, configurable dashboards and KPIs.

The Awakening: Onboarding Emerges as a Stragic Driver
In recent years it was clear organizations viewed onboarding as important, but struggled to connect it to strategy. Today, strategic onboarding has found its groove—not simply as a process or checklist but as a key driver that impacts business outcomes.
When you are looking at new products to help enable your onboarding experience, it's important to take a look under the hood and see what you're really getting.
Look at that onboarding product and make sure that it's delivering on all three of these components. Is it exciting and engaging? Is it delivering content at the right point in time in a personalized way, and does it help with the administrative perspective as well in the back end, and kind of make that life easier for your HR managers so that they can get back in the business of working with employees in a more strategic way and not be paper pushers kind of behind the scenes.
