A fun onboarding process offers a positive learning experience. It increases employees’ satisfaction, as it makes the employee feel welcomed and gives a good impression of your company.
Positive Impact on Employer Brand and Employee Experience
First Impressions Matter
For companies that are invested in developing their employer brand and employee experience, onboarding processes are strategically one of the most important functions there are. These companies recognise the importance of a positive employer brand and employee experience for the success and competitiveness of the organisation. It is easier to attract and hold onto talent when the foundations are sound and the reputation as an employer positive.
The introduction period of a new employee lays the foundations for the employment relationship. In general, almost a third of new employees quit their job during the first six months. But employees are more likely to stay in the company if they receive excellent onboarding. A successful onboarding process engages your new employees, sets their expectations for working with your company, and makes them feel welcome.
With Seppo it is easy to make your company stand out from the competition and show that you’re investing in your people and their success.
Ways Seppo Can Help With Onboarding
A pre-onboarding game is a great way to engage your new employees already before the first day of employment to make them feel welcome. Sharing a Seppo game with players is easy, thus you don't need to worry about the new employee having already all the tools ready set-up for them to be able to play your game.
With the help of Seppo, you can bring all the most important aspects of general onboarding into one game or split them into themes and thus separate games - you choose. Values and strategy, for example, can be explored through the game in an exciting way, and at the same time, you make sure that everyone gets the same general orientation, regardless of location. An interactive game encourages the player to think about their own views and thus at the same time, both the new employee learns about the organisation and the organisation about the employee.
Work Environment Onboarding
For familiarization with the new work environment, Seppo has a few options to offer. It pretty much depends on what the new workplace is like. Is the area outdoors, like an amusement park? Then the game board based on GPS positioning works great! Alternatively, for indoor training, you can choose, for example, a 360° image of the interior as the game board and add the tasks there. It is easy for the players to internalise the new work environment visually and remember the important things related to different places.
Task-specific onboarding involves reviewing key work tasks and their expected performance, making it a lengthy process. Gamified learning encourages the employee to take an active role which enhances both memory and learning. With the help of tasks, new employees can be challenged to look for answers both in databases and in their own memory, with various formats available such as video, sound, picture, or text. Gamification makes it easier to put what you've learned into practice. On top of everything, Seppo offers easy feedback for instructors and allows players to monitor their own progress.
Onboarding Game Template & Ready-Games
Seppo offers a number of ready-made games and game templates for corporate use. Games are of various themes and game templates are such that you can smoothly make them fit your company's needs. The onboarding template is a fast and easy way to get started and add some magic of gamification to your onboarding. Take a copy, change the theme, game board, and tasks, and use it as you like. Our services also include consulting, workshops, and turnkey projects.
