What was Wortells onboarding challenge?
Wortell believes that technology-driven organizations have the advantage. They help organization stay at the forefront through the smart use of Microsoft Technology, so that they can continue to provide a great service to (new) consumer and employees. Wortell has been doing this with more than 200 smart and passionate 'Wortellers', as their employees are called. "We're a real family and all a bit crazy."
Wortell wants to give new hires good support from the start and offers a thoroughly thought-out onboarding experience. “The most important thing is that the new employees get off to a flying start. That is why we provide them with as much information about the organization and their career journey at Wortell as possible. We were looking for a tool that could do this for us, and that is how we found Appical,” Friso Visser explains, Employer Branding Marketeer and responsible for the implementation of Appical at Wortell.
How does Wortells onboarding program look like now?
“We start preboarding our candidates by giving them access to the app ahead of the terms of employment interview. The app gives candidates all the information they need for the third interview and also contains some video and images of Wortell to give them an impression of our company.
In this way, Appical creates more contact moments during the candidate journey, which automatically results in closer bonding with the organization. Even before their first working day, the new employees already know what the various departments do, who is on their team thanks to the “People Finder” and who they can go to if they have a specific question.
“The app helps our employees take in all the know-how available in the organization a lot quicker. They no longer have to explore and get to learn the entire organization by themselves, but know who to turn to if they need specific information. We noticed that new Wortellers can start getting to work a lot quicker this way.”
