In the first weeks, recruits will be processing so much information. The initial information that presented to learners needs to be relevant and useful to them beginning their journey. Furthermore, employee onboarding needs to be personalised and accessible. With hybrid working digital employee onboarding helps to set the right conditions for motivation, performance, and loyalty no matter the environment. Certainly improving the recruitment process and employee retention.

Businesses go to great lengths and expense to identify, interview, and hire great employees for their organisation. Therefore, retaining them should be a top priority. However, keeping hold of a competent team is challenging when their responsibilities are unclear. This was the problem presented to our team by a business in need of a new solution. Immediately, we identified the root cause: a 12 week induction course lacking clear explanation and examples of the job role. To bring certainty and stability back to the business, Fenturi began crafting a digital employee onboarding course designed to inform, engage and empower recruits.


When it comes to workplace training, we believe that quality is more important that quantity. Educating an audience is achieved through engaging content. Unfortunately for staff this was the key component that was missing from the initial onboarding course. Working with the client’s subject matter experts, Fenturi designed a 2 hour highly interactive, video-based employee onboarding solution.

Strong communication is essential when taking on new members of staff. Consequently a lack of understanding can cause a quick exit from a confused recruit. So, we moved a significant proportion of the face-to-face course online. Using video we engaged the recruits and demonstrated a realistic day in the life in the job. On top of all the processes and tasks involved.

By cutting down on the time taken in F2F training to instead convey the responsibilities of the role clearly through a bespoke e-learning course, new team members can gain a good insight before going face-to-face. As a result, staff know straight away whether or not the job is right for them at the earliest possible stage.

Collaborating with Fenturi has helped to drastically improve staff turnaround, with recruits more confident than ever on the requirements and objectives of the role. This satisfying solution brings our story to an end: not only has the business benefited from the huge cost-savings that employee retention has brought, but the company is now fully ready to add new talent to their growing team.

Brilliant outcomes

  • Reduced face to face training from 12 to 8 weeks
  • Provided huge cost benefits, as the revised employee onboarding programme paid for itself on the first intake
  • Improved employee retention dramatically over 18 months

“Fenturi really managed to get under the skin of the issues we were having with our employee onboarding programme. The team came up with a solution that far exceeded our expectations. Potential recruits now get to see what the role entails before attending the residential training – a huge benefit in terms of time, cost, employee retention and productivity. I’d highly recommend Fenturi as a partner of choice.”
