My first year: increase employee engagement, improve retention and accelerate productivity
We have created world-class new hire programs for
the vision for New Hire Training
A new hire training and onboarding methodology that improves employee retention, and accelerates time to productivity.
The journey begins pre-Day 1 and creates agile and adaptable employees who have clear pathways to success.
My First Year leverages the Interactive Services Transition Platform, and other proven new hire learning frameworks to ensure an effective, efficient and engaging onboarding experience.
Guaranteed Manager Touchpoints During Onboarding
Our New Hire Transition Platform allows managers to monitor onboarding progress via a simple, easy-to-use dashboard.
Calendarized nudges ensure manager-new hire touchpoints occur to impact employee retention and reduce time to proficiency.
Our new hire transition platform provides pre-Day 1 access to content. Role profiling and personalization features ensure a high-quality experience throughout onboarding.
New hires can track their progress, access social media, compete with colleagues via a leaderboard, and arrange meet-ups with their managers and buddies.
Maximize new hire enthusiasm by providing pre-Day 1 access to content that accelerates time to proficiency.
Align new hire role expectations, and ensure onboarding begins with a Day 1 celebration.
Track new hire progress and set “nudges” via email to ensure key milestones are met, acknowledged and celebrated.
Anticipate employee attrition points with pastoral conversations between new hires and their managers to improve retention.
Many new hire programs fail because managers aren’t engaged. My First Year sets out a simple and easy-to-use track for managers, to ensure check-ins happen at the right time throughout the onboarding process.
Buddy tracks ensure learners integrate to the organization and adapt to the culture.
Engage new hires with a blended content program to accelerate their first 90 days in role. Plug your existing content into the transition platform, and build new content to engage the new hire and ensure retention and accelerated time to productivity.

My First Year arranges content into three “swim-lanes”:
"I understand who we are, where we’ve come from, and where we are going."
"I have functional support, and a clear road map to productivity."
"I am empowered to drive my own professional development and build my career."
Why does onboarding matter?
On average, new hires become productive only after 9 months in a role; and, yet, most employee attrition happens in the first 3 months.
Many organizations spend vast sums on carefully seeking out top talent, but without a state-of-the-art new hire training and onboarding program, they fail to engage and develop that talent once it walks in the door. Result? They start to lose good people, often before onboarding is complete.
Why start onboarding pre-Day 1?
Before they begin with your company, new hires are looking to learn as much as possible about the business, so that they can impress from the start.
By providing an online onboarding space, your new hires can orientate around your processes and practices before Day 1, and start to engage with your culture and brand. Make the most of that new hire goodwill!
Why focus on culture, performance and career?
In exit interviews, the #1 cited reason for leaving a new job is their failure to adapt to the working culture; and specifically the lack of a social circle at work. My First Year drives employee retention by ensuring intelligent interactions between new hires and their managers/designated “buddies” during onboarding.
The focus on new hire training that builds the new hire’s network from Day 1, ensures new hires have the support they need to accelerate their own development, and to set themselves up for success in their new career.
