Sapling empowers companies to solve one of their biggest problems: effectively onboarding new hires. Over the past half-decade, the corporate world has seen an emergence of Employee Experience (‘EX’) management, with HR developing a fractured identity – a strategic value-add to the progressive People Teams, and an administrative bureaucracy to the more traditional firms. For the progressive companies, they get it. They understand how “EX” provides real competitive advantage which is why leaders now need to focus more than ever on attracting, retaining and developing their talent base. Until the rapid growth of social media and the connected world, few companies invested in ‘EX’ management because the power was retained firmly in the hands of employer. Times have changed. The world has become more agile, more mobile, more transparent and more connected than ever, and employees now recognize that their skills and networks provide today’s job security, not corporations. The new frontier of People Management is employee engagement, satisfaction and development that drives company success. And this all starts with Employee Onboarding. That’s where Sapling changes the game. We’re on a mission to help everyone be great at employee onboarding, so we’re building a simple and intuitive onboarding platform to amplify the total ‘EX’. In doing so, we’re creating a solution that serves the entire organization to deliver awesome onboarding experiences to new employees, and drive value for recruiters, hiring managers, line managers, HR teams, IT teams and leadership.

The Fatal Flaws in Your New Hire Orientation Program
