You Work Hard to Get Top Talent in the Door. Engage, Equip and Empower Them for Success.

You only get one chance to make a first impression, and the lack of an effective onboarding process can result in unproductive employees or employees leaving your organization quickly. In a recent survey done by the Human Capital Institute, 20% of employee turnover happens within the first 45 days of employment.

SumTotal’s Onboarding solution engages new hires in a meaningful way by providing employees a comprehensive and unified onboarding experience that connects managers, teams and mentors to new employees, immerses new hires into the company culture, shows individual and company goals, links recommended learning and provides pre-boarding and day-one resources therefore accelerating time to performance and increasing retention.

Arm Managers with the Tools to be Effective

Managers are one of the top reasons people are leaving their jobs. That is because most managers today lack the skills needed to manage their teams. SumTotal enables managers to optimize their potential by surfacing critical team insight on a single dashboard. As the trend continues toward continuous development and feedback, SumTotal equips managers with visibility into team strengths and gaps and easy access to key actions for direct reports to effectively coach their employees.
