Especially in today’s growth-oriented economy where the competitive edge is people and culture, onboarding should be the start of an employee experience that gets everyone off on the right foot.

THE VALUE OF A DIGITAL-FIRST ONBOARDING EXPERIENCE
At LDS, we believe that onboarding starts well before the employee’s first day. It’s the first step in a personal, meaningful employee journey that assures them they’ve made the right decision and helps them hit the ground running. With a digital experience as the primary channel, onboarding can be a personal and smooth transition – instead of an alienating and confusing one – at every milepost. Ultimately, it will serve as a critical tool in building an engaged, aligned workforce in the organization of the future.
