This episode is an interview with Simon Connell from WebOnboarding.

Simon recently completed a guest webinar for us and as the lockdown has made onboarding an even hotter topic than it already was, I twisted his arm as I was keen to deliver an “expert episode” on the subject of onboarding.

We had a great conversation that started with the revelation that Simon’s passion outside of work is wrestling (hence the title of the episode). The conversation covered lots of interesting ground in the onboarding arena, including:

  • Simon’s tips on how to build an onboarding process from scratch
  • How some organisations are onboarding their staff completely remotely during the lockdown
  • How candidate expectations are changing and what this means for how you onboard new employees
  • The growing trend of more and more organisations offering welcome packs to new employees
  • New hire surveys and why surveying is key to understanding what is working and what needs improvement

You can connect with Simon here, and see more from WebOnboarding on their website.
