Customer Spotlight: The Impact of Technology on Employee Onboarding & Culture

Some of the questions they'll answer include:

  1. Why did your organization decide to turn to technology to help with employee onboarding? What's been the results?
  2. Has the introduction of technology led to a "new normal" of onboarding? How has it simplified the process?
  3. What have you seen in terms of corporate culture? Has there been a shift since the technology was implemented?
  4. What were some of the unexpected benefits of turning to technology to help with developing your corporate culture?
  5. Where do you see yourself in five years? How do you see this technology continuing to evolve in your organization?
