Onboarding

Go from first day to contributor – faster.

 

If you’ve watched the video above, you can see that hiring and onboarding sales reps is a serious investment. The same is true when onboarding any new hire no matter which function or role they come into.  If your onboarding program isn’t efficient, you are losing day by day even more through delayed productivity.  After all, new employess don’t come to work to fail, but as employers we are responsible for giving the best start possible.

Regardless of whether your new hire is a in their early career or an experienced professional, the dynamics of each industry, business and product means employees always have something to learn and master. Understanding these dynamics, and the specific competencies required to navigate them successfully, is critical to success.

Qstream accelerates onboarding by keeping it simple and focused for new hires. Using a scientifically proven methodology, Qstream gets new hires up to speed faster on the knowledge and skills necessary to hit critical milestones, and taps real-time data to help front line managers coach them along the way.

Qstream Benefits

No drinking from the firehose 

With so much new information, onboarding can be overwhelming. Drowning new hires in details is no way to get them closer to being a productive member of the team. Qstream helps streamline the onboarding process with an effective algorithm that pushes 2 to 3 practice scenarios to employees every other day, enhancing their sales capabilities and preparing them for client interactions.

Measure success with real data, not butts in seats

Determining the skill level of your newest employees is usually subjective, but that’s no way to understand a new hire’s progress when you can’t measure proficiency throughout their tenure. When you integrate Qstream challenges into your onboarding program, managers get clear data that establishes every employee’s baseline and improved proficiency over time. So you’ll always know who’s excelling or falling behind – long after boot camp.

Speed time to proficiency

Shortcuts don’t make for faster onboarding. They usually result in new employees who simply don’t absorb the necessary information. Qstream delivers high rates of mastery in just weeks instead of months, giving new hires the know-how and skills to excel in their job  faster. Participating in Qstream challenges – including text, video, and rich media – takes minutes a day and is scientifically proven to increase retention and durably change behaviors.

Take the guesswork out of coaching

Successful companies rely on manager coaching to reinforce onboarding activities, but knowing who and what to coach is often a blind spot. Qstream makes it both clear and simple. Easy-to-understand dashboards featuring sales fluency heatmaps and suggested coaching actions let managers instantly identify a new hire’s knowledge gaps, while the system is already at work addressing them.
