Greenhouse Unveils Latest Functionality to Create a Personalized, Meaningful and Efficient Experience for Every New Hire

NEW YORK (June 1, 2016) – Greenhouse Software, the leading recruiting software company, today announced the launch of Greenhouse Onboarding, a new solution enabling companies to deliver a meaningful onboarding experience for every new hire. By transforming new hire onboarding from a time-consuming, transactional and impersonal process into a positive and engaging experience, employers can ensure their newest employees are motivated and productive from their first day.

 “Onboarding is much more than filling out paperwork or setting up the new hire’s workstation; it’s an opportunity to integrate them into the team and culture, build alignment with the company’s mission and give them the support they need to have a long and successful tenure,” said Daniel Chait, CEO of Greenhouse. “With Greenhouse Onboarding, we make it easier for companies to deliver the personalized, high-touch experience crucial to engaging new hires from the beginning. Not only does this build excitement and anticipation throughout the onboarding process, but it will also help confirm a new hire’s decision to join the company.”

The need to deliver an exceptional onboarding experience is pressing – research shows that 90 percent of new hires make a decision to stay with their new employer within their first six months. Although companies invest a great deal of time and resources to provide an optimal candidate experience – showing the benefits of joining the company and how it can help advance their careers – this level of attention can dissipate once the candidate accepts the job offer. The result is a poor new hire experience characterized by repetitive, inefficient tasks, a lack of engagement, limited visibility and manual processes that are difficult to measure or optimize.

Greenhouse Onboarding solves these challenges, delivering a powerful, people-focused platform that reduces administrative tasks, minimizes inconsistencies and enables companies to deliver a red-carpet treatment to their newest team members. By essentially extending the high-touch, transparent candidate experience to the new employee experience, Greenhouse Onboarding inspires engagement with new employees and keeps them motivated and eager to make a difference in their new company.

 Madeline Laurano, co-founder and chief research officer of Aptitude Research Partners, commented, “Without an effective onboarding system to engage new hires, all of an organization’s investment in talent acquisition and the candidate experience goes to waste. Greenhouse’s next generation talent acquisition and Onboarding platform provides organizations with the consistency they need to transition candidates into new hires and drive performance and productivity.”

With Greenhouse Onboarding, companies can:

  • Personalize the onboarding experience for every hire: By automatically creating a personalized pre-boarding experience, employers can showcase the company culture, focus on people and streamline communications, helping prepare new hires for their first day and setting the stage for a successful tenure.
  • Create automated onboarding workflows and task lists: Assigning activities and due dates to all stakeholders helps manage the entire onboarding experience, keeping everyone aware of what they must do so nothing falls through the cracks.
  • Streamline and organize employee records and data: Greenhouse Onboarding enables companies to collect and store vital data, from contact information and employment history to food allergies and equipment requests, in one place, ensuring easy access to employee records.
