Better first impressions

Engaging new people through effective onboarding saves time, money and frustration.

You’re taking on great new, talented people – but are you keeping them? One in five new people leave a job within the first 45 days and employees who go through effective onboarding are 69% more likely to stay for three or more years.

And it has a positive impact on new workers who are more informed, more motivated and can start being productive from day one.

How Sequel can help you be better at onboarding

In our work with clients, we’re seeing much closer integration between IC and HR. Recruitment consultant VMA’s Inside Insight report, which surveyed 670 internal communications professionals, reported a gradual rise in the number of IC teams who report into HR – a shift in the industry.

Engaging employees and creating a memorable first impression needs teamwork between HR and IC which is why we’ve created an onboarding toolkit to help organisations big and small to produce a welcoming new employee start pack.

We’re not HR practitioners, but we are experts in engaging people, crafting key messages and creating effective communications that work with your existing HR processes to create a better employee experience.

Key benefits:

  • Personalised and tailored to your organisation – look, feel and tone to reflect your culture and values
  • Dial up or dial down: a basic pack or enhanced suite that best fits your budget and that’s measured to test success
  • It starts before your new employee walks in the door, creating the right first impression, then follows them through their first 100+days.
