We love helping you onboard new starters!
Did you know, 71% of UK office workers agreed that they would have settled into their new role much more quickly with a straightforward onboarding process to follow?
A successful onboarding program can make the difference between congratulating your new starter on finishing their first year, to waving goodbye to them after a week. That’s because an effective onboarding process can make or break a new hire.
That’s why we’ve got a quick and easy trick for onboarding new starters: an epic onboarding pack.
They’re your first physical touchpoint with your new starter, regardless of whether they work from an office, remotely or hybrid. They help make your new recruit feel more welcome, they help encourage staff retention, and with a whole load of products to choose from you can truly personalise your packs.

Why onboarding packs work
1) Onboarding packs help you recruit with ease
The key to a great onboarding pack is one that makes your new starters feel welcome right from the start. That old saying, “first impressions count” is more important than ever now that the traditional work environment is evolving quickly.
Your onboarding goals have to be flexible, and your processes streamlined. It has to be fun and engaging and can no longer be only a single-day event.
Put simply, it’s an ongoing talent strategy.
A chipped mug and a squeaky chair just aren’t going to cut it anymore.
2) Retention is guaranteed with onboarding packs
A new starter that has a successful onboarding experience is 58% more likely to still be at the same company 3 years later. By setting the right tone, with guidelines of what’s expected of your new starter, plus setting clear objectives, you’re more likely to retain that talent.
When deciding whether to stay in their new position, 86% of new starters thought about leaving within the first 6 months. With a tailored onboarding strategy that tackles any uncertainties head-on, you’ll minimise any wavering confidence in your new employee.
Achieving this is easy with a well-thought-out onboarding pack.
3) Fantastic products, chosen just for you
An onboarding pack is your first touchpoint with new starters, their first glimpse at your company culture. It has to find the right balance between engagement and information.
You want them to know what’s expected of them, but you want them to be excited.
Like, really excited!
Starting a new position comes with a lot of logistical paperwork and lots to remember. An onboarding pack that considers what your new starters will face in the first few weeks will be their ultimate survival guide, and they’ll be sure to thank you for it!
