Why to launch Workelo?
We decided to launch Workelo with 2 facts in mind: (1) engaged employees stay longer in a company and are more productive (2) engagement starts at the very beginning of the relationship between the company and a new-hire: the onboarding phase
Today, when companies are fastly scaling or facing high churn rate, the onboarding is neglected and operational managers are left alone to deal with it.
This process inefficiency has strong impacts on the business, on a short term as the new-hires take months to reach their 100% productivity while monopolizing strong management ressources and on a long term as they will likely leave
What's your concept around Workelo?
That’s why Workelo, a SAAS platform to process and standardize the integration of each employee, appeared to be the perfect match.
Launched beginning of 2017 by 2 entrepreneurs with a strong track record, the mission of Workelo is to become the un-questioned HR service used to succeed the onboarding process of a new employee.
Why the name of Workelo?
Workelo combines the term Work with Elo, a famous mathematic method for calculating automatically the relative skill levels of players in games such as chess, basketball or scrabble. This name appears as an evidence because of its values of team spirit, performance, automation and fun. This is all about the platform !
