What was the goal of the app for Nationale-Nederlanden?

Nationale-Nederlanden was looking to communicate with its employees in a more personal, innovative, and interactive way that will set up new hires for success a lot faster. Appical provides the technology and helped to develop the process.

Proactively responding to customers' needs is important to Nationale-Nederlanden and so they wished to translate this approach to an onboarding program where the end-user employee is a customer just as well.

The challenge

"Our previous onboarding ‘program’ was a quarterly meeting, and it often took place too late for new employees, leading to very little added value. We were looking for a way to give our employees a warm welcome and to inform and enthuse them in a clear manner about Nationale-Nederlanden. In addition, we wanted to extend our online-focused strategy and use it to influence our own people."

Coffee time

It’s quite customary for new employees to sit down for a cup of coffee with a teammate on the first day or at least in the first week. Through the app you know in advance who is the buddy in your team and which ‘people of interest' your colleague advises you to have coffee with.
