Land High Caliber Talent
SilkRoad Offers is a branded solution designed for organizations that need to manage and simplify complex offer and signature processes and approval workflows.
First Time Manager, Transfers and Other Role Changes
Whether employees are promoted as a part of a succession plan or the creation of a new role, organizations that deliver intentional content, learning and check-ins drastically improve the chances of success for employees in transition. Strategic onboarding guides employees through their role transition with tasks and activities such as integrated learning, alignment with a new mentor or buddy and performance expectation setting, accelerating contribution and effectiveness.
Ensure compliance and efficiency by delivering required policies to employees for their review, achieving a single point of signature. For organizations that require an annual signature on certain policies, RedCarpet Onboarding delivers annual policies for acknowledgment on a yearly cadence while providing organizational insight into compliance through reporting.
Support Employees Through Significant and Potentially Uncertain Transitions
Employees require both offboarding ahead of their departure and onboarding when they return. A carefully designed and executed experience creates a smooth transition, encourages retention and ensures productivity.
Employees need to transfer their work prior to their departure. Knowledge transfer to employees taking on additional roles or responsibilities is crucial to maintaining continuity, productivity and the achievement of goals. Departing employees feel that the organization understands their situation and is eager for their return.
Employees need to be re-onboarded to ensure they have the knowledge, context and support they need for a successful transition back into the workforce. Returning employees notify the team of their return date, check-in with their manager, meet up with the team to understand outstanding projects, learn about changes in strategy or direction and complete knowledge transfer for past activities and future needs.
Mergers & Acquisitions
RedCarpet onboarding delivers tailored experiences for a range of events within the employee lifecycle. Manage merger and acquisition events where acquired talent needs to understand the new company’s culture and strategy.
SilkRoad for M&A provides a positive and seamless workforce readiness and transformation solution using long-term strategic onboarding as the engine of change management. It follows employees through the acquisition process, creates personalized experiences that retain people, reduces risk and increases the success of an M&A transaction.
Mitigate Corporate Risk When Offboarding Employees and Contingent Workers
The RedCarpet offboarding experience is a systematic way to protect your brand, reputation and business continuity. Doing so ensures the organization does not lose its reputation or ability to compete. Obtain key insights from departing employees and contingent workers through exit interviews or surveys. Secure business information, data and equipment.
With SilkRoad RedCarpet Onboarding, we’ve created a completely different new hire experience. We’ve gone from a compliance focus to a more strategic program that includes an introduction to culture, communication of the new hire’s role in the organization and meeting all compliance needs.
