Get new employees fully up to speed
Induction and onboarding training shouldn’t be a one-off session, but a gradual process, to ensure new employees are comprehensively educated about procedures and policies.
While inductees benefit from such an extended and more comprehensive approach, it can require a lot of time from existing employees, which they could otherwise be spending on day-to-day work tasks.
Wranx uses short but regular drills and assessment to bring new employees fully up to speed on company procedures and policies, as well as to help them remember the information over the long-term. Workloads of existing employees, meanwhile, aren’t impacted.
Developing our people in this way supports our drive for workplace learning, allowing our employees to learn in the most effective way, on the job.

Onboarding is the process of introducing new employees and helping them integrate into an organisation. Many people mistakenly believe that onboarding is centered around teaching new employees about the company’s products and services. It has many aspects to it and involves familiarising new starters with the company’s brand and values, operations and culture (both professional and social).
An effective employee onboarding programme is essential in order to integrate new employees into an organisation and reduce staff turnover, as employees who experience a negative onboarding process are more likely to leave their role. Nearly one-third of new hires leave their role in the first six months.
