CHICAGO, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based social talent management software, today announced a partnership with HR survey/analytics authority Nobscot Corporation designed to combine the power of SilkRoad's RedCarpet® HR onboarding system with Nobscot's automated FirstDays new hire/quality of hire surveys to help companies optimize their HR and recruitment policies and procedures.
RedCarpet customers can now use FirstDays as well as Nobscot's WebExit exit interview management system to identify and correct irritants that can cause costly employee attrition. In addition, FirstDays and WebExit customers can now use RedCarpet to help solve the problems identified by the Nobscot surveys.
RedCarpet automates new hire orientation and onboarding processes while also managing employee transitions such as promotions, transfers and offboarding. Content ranging from welcome messages and new employee forms to schedules, training and other supporting materials is delivered through a customizable employee portal, streamlining HR operations.
FirstDays online surveys measure the new hire experience in areas ranging from the recruitment process to the work environment, pinpoint the causes of 'quick quits' (new hires that leave in the first 90 days), and poll supervisors about the new hire quality. WebExit automates the exit interview process and provides detailed insights into reasons for employee turnover.
By utilizing the SilkRoad and Nobscot products in tandem, companies will be able to:
- Receive continuous feedback about new hires' RedCarpet experience, providing a roadmap for improving company information provided in the RedCarpet portal.
- Address problems uncovered in FirstDays and WebExit surveys by utilizing the tools provided by RedCarpet.
- Access applications from both companies with a single login, enabling easy switching between RedCarpet and FirstDays/WebExit accounts.
- Trigger FirstDays and WebExit surveys from RedCarpet, including time-saving automatic population of employee data into the both survey systems.
"The mission of our RedCarpet software solution is to help companies improve their onboarding, recruiting and retention strategies. Nobscot's new hire and exit interview survey platforms complement that objective perfectly," said Flip Filipowski, Executive Chairman and Co-CEO of SilkRoad. "This partnership gives our customers valuable new tools for measuring employee satisfaction, evaluating new hire quality, and combating turnover."
"Using our new hire, quality-of-hire and exit surveys in conjunction with SilkRoad's RedCarpet platform will shed light on problems ranging from mistaken expectations about the job and company to unwelcoming co-workers, weak on-the-job training and other reasons for early attrition," said Beth N. Carvin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nobscot. "Identifying these kinds of problems is the first step to correcting them and paving the way for increased employee retention."
No in-house software installation is required to use FirstDays or WebExit, all questions are customizable to meet individual company needs, and survey results can be examined by department, division, location, gender and other parameters as well as companywide with a click. Deployment and customization assistance are provided by Nobscot HR and technology professionals.
