Induction training is usually your best opportunity to inspire new employees – but in an age of remote working, onboarding is no longer straightforward. If your organisation wants to retain and motivate new starters, it will need to think about online induction programmes that are both dynamic and engaging.

At Sponge, we know what induction and onboarding experiences need to achieve. We listen closely to your needs and identify how they can be met with digital learning. We then create bespoke online experiences using video, animation, storytelling, webinars, games, and even virtual reality elements – all to create the best Day 1 possible. Finally, we use our tech and project expertise to deploy your programme at any scale, in multiple languages, anywhere in the world.

Time pressure.

Team leaders cannot always find time to teach new starters the basics – but engaging, memorable digital learning can get them up to speed fast.

Information overload. 

In the first week of a new job, employees can be swamped by new information. Focused induction training can mitigate this and create a more positive experience.

Inaccurate messaging.

When different managers instruct new starters, messaging may become inconsistent. Digital induction training can help provide a more uniform approach.

Senior team participation.

Senior leaders generally have few opportunities to meet new starters, but messaging from the senior team can be effectively built into our training solutions.
