Creating the best employee onboarding experience with the power of Firstbase and Enboarder

With Firstbase and Enboarder, we’re combining personalized, digital onboarding with seamless equipment outfitting, creating the best onboarding experience for your employees. Make your employees feel welcomed and set up for success well before day one and beyond with the power of Firstbase and Enboarder.

Poor onboarding can lead to employee churn

With the rise of remote and hybrid work, having a great onboarding experience has never been more important and studies have shown that onboarding can directly impact employee retention. According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), as much as 20% of staff turnover occurs within the first 45 days of employment. As alarming as this is, only 12% of employees believe their organization does a great job of onboarding new hires. And simply put, companies can’t afford to lose great talent, as it costs between six and nine months of salary to replace a salaried employee.

Why a great onboarding experience matters

When it comes to employee retention, having a great onboarding experience not only has an impact on the first few months, but also extends much further. According to SHRM, 69% of new employees are more likely to remain at least three years when they have a comprehensive onboarding experience. That’s why at Firstbase we’re excited to announce our partnership with Enboarder to supercharge the onboarding experience. Enboarder is an employee communication and workflow platform that creates better human connection across the entire employee journey. Enboarder enables users to create personalized onboarding experiences to connect and engage with new hires. With this partnership, Enboarder customers are now able to leverage the Webhook module to connect to the Firstbase API, allowing them to seamlessly kick off and automate the physical equipment outfitting process as part of the digital onboarding experience.

Customers have already seen the benefits of supercharging their onboarding experience with Firstbase and Enboarder:

We have an international e-commerce company that has connected Enboarder to Firstbase and are already seeing great improvement in their onboarding experience. Enboarder is able to automatically trigger a new account creation and onboarding package in Firstbase as soon as the offer letter is signed so the employee is ready to go by day one. This new partnership has helped to break down silos between HR and IT as now you can manage the digital onboarding experience and physical onboarding experience all in one personalized workflow.
