Employee Onboarding: Four Key Ingredients of Optimized CX - Hinduja Global Solutions Ltd. - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog
Posted by Geoff Oakie
In today’s global, digital economy, exceptional and effortless customer experience is a key differentiator.
With the commoditization of virtually all products and services, organizations truly need to set themselves apart, to attain and retain customers. Smart organizations realize that the foundation of such a customer experience begins with their employees. These companies focus equal or greater amounts of time, energy, and resources on employee experience as the customer journey. They understand that happy, intelligent and well-qualified employees are the foundation to happy customers.
At HGS, we start with a pre-designed strategic Employee Experience Blueprint designed to attract the right representatives and empower them to deliver the right customer experience. The HGS CX Blueprint delivers increased retention rates, higher customer satisfaction, decreased employee turnover, and higher overall return on our clients’ BPO investments.
Great CX Begins with the HGS Employee Onboarding Experience
What’s at the foundation of our Employee Experience Blueprint? It’s our Onboarding program, which is designed to recognize and intentionally build the employee relationship at key “moments of truth.” Starting from the moment team members walk in the door for their first interview, and moving along through the hiring and training process, HGS has identified anxiety and job satisfaction triggers, creating and nurturing a positive emotional connection and empowering experience.
The onboarding program starts on day one. HGS job candidates are welcomed to their interview warmly, by name, as a potential new member of the HGS family. As successful candidates, our newest HGS team members, are brought through the four-stage onboarding process, they are supported, encouraged, and respected along the way. They also are prepared for the complexities and challenges of customer care. Following our onboarding processes, our staff and management create what we’ve observed to be both a loyal and able employee, proud to represent our client’s brands.
CX Optimization Starts with the Right Team
The HGS onboarding framework comprises four key Ingredients that contribute to making customer experiences high-impact, helpful, and empathetic:
HGS built this framework to ensure our newest employee’s perceptions and opinions are positive and bolster our referrals and recruitment success. What we found when we implemented this was that the impacts of our onboarding program went so much deeper. Through our efforts, HGS has been able to affect our client’s business in many other positive ways:
- Employee Retention (initial/90 days and ongoing): As expected, the onboarding blueprint increased initial 90-day retention, encouraging and empowering employees to stay in the often difficult initial months, however, the culture we developed was appreciated. Employees chose to stay with us and our clients’ longer than ever before.
- Customer Retention and Customer Satisfaction: As a function of our empowered employee with longer tenure, we are able to positively impact both customer retention and customer satisfaction.
Exceptional and effortless customer experience is a key differentiator that HGS provides, optimizing the customer experience… helping our clients to become more competitive.

Making Training and Development Part of Your Corporate Landscape
Organizations are always on the look out to save money and make more profit. Usually when it comes to crunch time some leaders will scrap training in order to tighten the belt. The downside of this is the cycle it creates.
Because some employers see training as a flexible benefit, employee development is often taken off the table. When employees don’t feel valued it becomes easy to see a revolving door. The constant need to hire goes up which ultimately means costs go up; we know that hiring costs more than retaining the right people.
