Kaiser Associates and Appical are joining forces to create irresistible employee experiences

Appical, the company that is providing immersive and people driven solutions for new hires and Kaiser Associates, the pioneer in global onboarding strategy development, announced their partnership today.

“Talent is still confronted with lots of disappointments when they start in their new role because companies still approach onboarding from a procedural perspective”, said Gerrit Brouwer, CEO of Appical. “Our partnership with Kaiser Associates helps us in our joint mission to put onboarding on top of the executive agenda within the Enterprise and to create awareness on why it is so important to approach onboarding as a key part of the talent retention strategy. Kaiser Associates is in our opinion the true subject matter expert in the field of onboarding, providing high-end strategy consulting to their global oriented customer base.”

At an increasingly rapid pace we are seeing global organizations seeking solutions that put employees in the center of driving their own learning and development without compromising the delivery of an exceptional experience for employees,” said Lilith Christiansen, VP of Kaiser Associates and co-author, Successful Onboarding: A Strategy to Unlock Hidden Value in your Organization. “In developing onboarding programs that scale across diverse, global populations, this challenge is particularly acute.  The Appical platform provides an exceptional solution to delivering an engaging experience for new hires that leverages technology and social learning in an easy, scalable way.

Kaiser’s subject matter expertise and experience combined with Appical’s immersive and people driven onboarding solution will create multiple benefits for hiring managers, executive management and HR:

  • #Assessing onboarding. The Kaiser Associates framework helps companies to identify “the current state” of the their onboarding initiatives and to identify the potential improvement factors.
  • #Formulating strategic onboarding strategies. Based upon the outcome of the assessments and in combination with social innovation, companies are able to formulate a strategy that is originated by their own employees.
  • #Create solid content. Together we have gathered experience working with many enterprises where we learn on a daily basis which content really connects new hires with their organizations. We will share these great practices.

What’s next?

In the new year we will join forces to assist our customers to take their employee journey to the next level by inspiring them with great content, blogs, joint implementations and in-depth expertise.

To celebrate our partnership we will co-host a featured webinar on “Creating an irresistible employee experience” where we will discuss the key success factors for a successful onboarding strategy, experiences from the field and the business case for onboarding. We will host the webinar on Thursday, December 18th, 2014 at 10AM EST / 4PM CET.
