Improved accuracy and consistency. Everything is centralized in one portal. New hires can complete mundane tasks at home before their start dates. Managers can track what has been done and what hasn’t. New hires appreciate that all tasks can be done on an iPad, at their own rate.
Attracts high-quality candidates. High-tech portal conveys industry leadership and appeals to new hires looking for efficiency and company culture integration. Allows new hires to view personalized welcomes, company story, president’s priorities, video features and more before they show up.
Engaging brand-specific experience. “Front Porch” portal evokes the excitement new homeowners feel when they step up to their front door for the first time. Provides new hires with immediate understanding of the company they now work for.
Adaptable to employee lifecycle. Portal content supports employee changes through career transitions such as promotions and transfers. Social media integration builds camaraderie and celebrates key life changes, including anniversaries, new arrivals and the like.
Minimized time required for pre-hire paperwork from 4 hours to 30 minutes. Activated new hires who feel welcomed and empowered.
Automated check-ins with managers and mentors helps Trendmaker avoid “quick quits” — employees leaving in the first 90 days. Supports and encourages ongoing feedback with portal.
