New Hires In 2017
Employees in Belgium
Average Age of a Deloitter
Annelies is a seasoned project manager for firm-wide programs in a range of areas related to Talent Management, but always keeping the focus on the people at the heart of her organization.
Deloitte provides audit, tax, consulting, enterprise risk and financial advisory services with more than 263,900 professionals globally (source). Deloitte has been named among 2017 “Best Companies To Work For” for 18 years in a row (source), not least due to their employee-centric approach and a relentless innovation spirit.
Annelies shares her experience of implementing the Talmundo onboarding solution and streamlining Deloitte Belgium's new hire welcome by leveraging technology where it makes the most impact.
Before implementing the Talmundo App, new hires at Deloitte were exposed to too much information at once. Documents, presentations and induction lectures- there is only a limited amount of hours in the day to go over all of the materials available for employee orientation, let alone - for new hires to process the information properly. New hires’ inboxes and desks were flooded with paperwork, replacing the excitement of starting a new job with feeling overwhelmed.
Using Talmundo’s automated content delivery system allowed Deloitte to simplify and consolidate onboarding processes at once. Having launched their Onboarding 2.0 approach in June 2017, Deloitte Belgium has already transformed multiple facets of new hire welcome, with the Talmundo Welcome App at its core.
Today new hires at Deloitte Belgium receive an invitation to join the app right after they have signed their contract. With many graduate hires entering the company every year, their start day is frequently months after the interviewing and recruitment stages. Instead of losing touch with new hires show up on their first day, Deloitte sustains communication throughout the pre-boarding period through Talmundo's onboarding solution, supporting future employees throughout their examinations and graduation struggles, preparing them for a successful first day on the job and career beyond.
Today the new hire welcome day at Deloitte is supported by relevant digital content delivered to new hires and further enhanced by unique Business Unit Induction sessions and social events at the office. This combination of technology and in-person approach makes sure that new hires’ valuable time is spent only on processing the information relevant to them and their department. Out with the general welcome talks - in with the hands-on practical approach that will get new Deloitters productive faster.
"Onboarding is pretty important in terms of connecting with your people and making sure they understand exactly what their role is about,” explains Annelies.
Talmundo’s integrated pulse-checks and feedback mechanisms deliver all the crucial new hire feedback straight to HR, allowing Annelies and her team to assess the success of app integration, as well as build on their knowledge of popular content modules.
Deloitte has insights into the most popular content - Let’s take off, Discover Deloitte, Ambassador - and realtime feedback on statement like, "I felt welcome by my team lead," and "As far as I know today, Deloitte is the right environment to realise my professional ambitions." With feedback forms going beyond the welcome day and into an assessment of the overall recruitment experience, the app allows Deloitte to get a more holistic image of their interaction with talent.
