Greenhouse Partners With Parklet to Deliver Enhanced New Hire Onboarding Experience

Integration Facilitates Seamless Transition from Applicant to Employee

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 14, 2015) - Greenhouse Software, the leading recruiting optimization platform, today announced details of its partnership with Parklet, the leading onboarding and employee experience solution. Through this integration, employers using Greenhouse to optimize their recruiting processes can now leverage Parklet's advanced platform to transform onboarding into a fully immersive experience that gets new hires up to speed much sooner.

Most employers today understand the need to deliver an exceptional candidate experience, going above and beyond to show how the company can help job applicants achieve their professional goals. Although recruiters and hiring managers often do a great job of getting candidates excited about joining the company, the process of onboarding those new hires and assimilating them into the company typically leaves much room for improvement. All too often, new hires start their first day completing paperwork and other administrative functions, rather than more value-added activities, such as getting to know their new colleagues, beginning training activities and learning about the company and its culture.

To help employers address the crucial onboarding stage, Greenhouse partnered with Parklet to help companies deliver a consistent onboarding experience to all new employees. Through Parklet's platform, employers can eliminate many of the traditional challenges involved with onboarding, creating a streamlined process for bringing their new hires into the organization and ensuring they become productive employees from the beginning.

Additional benefits of the Greenhouse and Parklet integration include the ability to:

  • Welcome new hires before their first day: With access to Parklet, new employees can complete their new hire paperwork and perform other tasks before they even start the job, enabling their first day to be much more productive. The system also notifies current employees about new hires joining the team and allows them to send welcome messages, helping new employees feel a part of the team from day one.
  • Provide a single source for all company information: A new hire will undoubtedly have many questions. Employers can make it easier for them to learn about company rules and guidelines by storing information, such as time-off policies and the company dress code, as well as training materials, in the Parklet system.
  • Help new hires learn about their colleagues: Parklet provides an intuitive company directory and engaging profiles by which employees can share key information about themselves ranging from the basic (name and job title) to more fun, company culture-related information.
  • Streamline processes and reduce risk: A seamless onboarding workflow and improved communications between HR and recruiters help companies eliminate instances of data duplication and time-wasting paperwork, while removing the risk of human error through automation.

"When candidates make the transition into new hires, it is essential that employers follow through on the value proposition that sold those individuals to join in the first place; if not, the company will struggle to engage and retain its newest employees," said Daniel Chait, CEO of Greenhouse. "Our partnership with Parklet enables us to provide our clients with the means to link their recruiting and onboarding processes, creating an elevated new hire experience that leads to greater productivity and retention."

"Onboarding is more than just filling out forms; it is a company's first chance to truly engage new hires and immerse them in the company and its culture," said Dane Hurtubise, CEO of Parklet. "We are pleased to partner with Greenhouse and extend our reach to more companies looking to transform the way they transition their top candidates into their next great employees."
