Introducing Lesson Desk’s digital Onboarding solution

7 May 2021 | Lesson Desk Team2 min read

Studies have indicated that efficient onboarding programmes can increase retention by 25% and improve employee performance by 11%. This is why using an effective onboarding solution to introduce new starters to your company’s processes, as well as product and service knowledge, is vital in ensuring that they are well-prepared to confidently take on their new role. One way to ensure a positive experience is to go digital.

Traditional onboarding consists of lengthy discussions regarding company policies and procedures as well as the company profile and structure, paperwork, and lengthy training sessions that are jam-packed with crucial information. While all of these aspects of an onboarding process are extremely important, there is a more efficient solution.

By digitising onboarding, you can make your traditional onboarding process available online. This form of welcoming new starters into a business allows you to quickly get your new employees up and running while still providing a fun, engaging and memorable onboarding experience. Seamlessly integrate employees into the company and ensure they have all the knowledge and tools needed to start working and contribute to the business in a valuable way. Additionally, digital onboarding can be used to make a positive impact on any first impressions that your new hires might have of your company.

Lesson Desk’s new Onboarding solution can do all of this and more! Now you can offer your remote or in-house new hires an improved induction experience by creating and delivering customisable onboarding programmes that are guaranteed to help them transition into your business with ease.

The Lesson Desk Head Office admin portal provides you with all the necessary tools required to build exciting onboarding lessons and courses, as well as schedule and distribute important company documents straight to your new employees’ employee profile on our Individual app. New employees can complete their induction programme from any web-enabled device or in interactive group settings, making administration convenient and trouble-free.

Lesson Desk’s Onboarding solution consists of various features that will ensure a smooth-sailing digital induction process for both you and your new starters:

Employees are conveniently introduced to your products and services.

With Lesson Desk’s flexible Onboarding feature, new hires can gain knowledge on all your business’ products and services from anywhere and at any time.

By allowing for a more convenient manner to learning, training can occur without the constraints of time or location.

Easily support both remote and on-site employees.

If your workforce is spread across various branches, countries or even time zones, our digital Onboarding solution is the answer.

Not only can you give everyone a standardised onboarding experience with regards to quality and company-branded content, but you can also tailor your programmes according to each employee’s role. In doing so, you can ensure that no one is left behind or feels like the company does not have their best interests at heart.

Streamlined document storage and accessibility.

A shortcoming of traditional onboarding is that it involves a hefty amount of admin and paperwork. After printing out company documents for employees to sign, HR professionals would need to file them accordingly with the aim of not losing anything.

These documents can include policies and procedures, company annexures, certifications, CVs, ID documents and more.

Instead, with Lesson Desk’s digital onboarding process, you can store everything in on single database. Your employees can access any document on any internet-enabled device, allowing you to easily and safely store important paperwork online.

A solution that saves you valuable time and resources.

Onboarding new employees can cost your company a great amount of time and resources. In addition to this, traditional onboarding costs such as printing materials, paperwork and more are also prevalent.

However, if you want to reduce your costs, implementing an onboarding programme online is imperative. By doing so, you can also ensure that your HR team has more time available to work on other aspects of your business.

Bring new starters closer to your company.

A more streamlined and organised induction process allows for a more standardised experience for all new starters. This also brings us to the aspect of making a good first impression – Lesson Desk’s Onboarding feature gives you control with regards to how your new hires perceive the company. By giving everyone the same experience, you can build a workforce that understands the culture and values of your business to its very core.

Our solution also allows you to easily tweak any process or upgrade any training material that you already have in order to improve and adjust it according to specific job roles, as well as to align with the company brand and style.
