Onboarding stories

Boost new hire engagement and productivity

Stop losing high potential employees. Help new starters feel connected to people, purpose and their future careers with real video stories captured with StoryTagger.

High performing talent teams share brilliant onboarding stories 

Authentic, concise and user-generated stories covering the key points new hires need to see.

Too much process,
too little culture

Recruitment teams increasingly use company culture, values and learning opportunities to attract the best talent. However, making sure all new starters experience these benefits in the first 45 days is tough.

This is especially hard when onboarding can over-focus on processes and paperwork with new starters expected to cover an average of 54 activities during their induction.

New hires struggle to
feel connected

Attracting and retaining the best and brightest talent is critical, but poor onboarding costs the global economy billions of dollars.

New team members must reach peak performance quickly. They also need to feel connected with colleagues, your culture and their future career potential.

This is where workplace storytelling offers a cost-effective, agile and reliable way to excite, train and demonstrate why they’ve made a great employer choice.

Connecting new starters with people and brand

When Adidas set up their flagship store in London, they needed new starters to feel personally connected with leaders and experts across the business to support sales, culture and innovation.

However, real-time conversations in a busy global retail environment were impossible, so they used asynchronous video storytelling.
