Courseplay enables the worlds largest IT companies speed up recruitment and engage employees even before they are onboard
Fast growing teams need to save time – cut recruitment cycles into half!
One of the world’s top IT giants was looking to train their pre-hires so that while the candidates are giving multiple interview rounds, the candidates stay engaged and immersed in the company’s culture. By the time they get hired, these candidates are well-trained and ready to hit the ground running.
Large organizations that don’t have a strong onboarding culture typically lose new employees within 3 months due to employees feeling disconnected and disengaged in the workplace.
Time Consuming Onboarding
Onboarding post hiring generally takes up a minimum of 3 months at a stretch and this leads to loss of productive hours.
Hassle Free Onboarding
To avoid this and to keep candidates engaged, it is key that this initiative is kicked-off as soon as the candidate is selected. The candidate can be onboarded according to their abilities, job role or skill gaps even before their first day.
Manual Collection of Candidate Data
HR teams spend valuable time in gathering candidate data. Each candidate has to be manually coordinated, which is not sustainable at any organization with more than a few hundred employees. In-person or human interface during recruitment and onboarding can create recruitment fatigue and human error which can create disengagement and incorrect fitment of new hires.
Automatic Generation of Candidate Data
To reduce the risk of assessor fatigue and human error, Courseplay can be leveraged to generate objective candidate data in batches so that they can be interviewed optimally. Different sets of questions can be asked to shortlist only the top scorers for the interview round.
Repetitive administrative work for HR
Valuable HR bandwidth is used in training and onboarding new-hires. Keeping track of details such as the new joiner’s batch, learning, and onboarding tasks leads to loss of productivity if not automated.
Focus on Employees not Administration
HR teams can bow focus on building employee engagement and charting out their development instead of supervising repetitive onboarding tasks.
Higher Onboarding Cost
The cost of onboarding is high as it leads to candidates spending valuable time in training rather than achieving targets. There is also a risk of the employee exiting the company early if they are not adequately engaged.
Pre-hire Training Automation
To optimize the recruitment process, clients should offer engaging and interactive pre-hire courses to their candidates. Courses should be automatically assigned to candidates based on their joining dates, job roles and competencies.
With the above solution, one of the world’s top IT giants was able to train their pre-hires so that while the candidates are giving multiple interview rounds, the candidates stay engaged and immersed in the company’s culture. Using scalable cloud servers by AWS, the entire solution was cost effective and secure regardless of the load on any given day. By the time these candidates were hired, these candidates were well-trained and ready to hit the ground running.
IT Companies can save time in upskilling and training the new-hires to avoid production loss. Using Courseplay, enterprises are able to engage new hires and bring them up to speed before their first day!
