Why 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 the concept around Workelo?
That’s why Workelo, a SAAS platform to process and standardize each employee's integration, appeared to be the perfect match.
Launched at the beginning of 2017 by 2 entrepreneurs with a strong track record, Workelo's mission is to become the unquestioned HR service used to make the new employees' onboarding a success.
Why the name of Workelo?
Workelo combines the term Work with Elo, a famous mathematic method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in games such as chess, basketball or scrabble. This name appears as an evidence because of its team spirit, performance, automation and fun values. This is what the plateform is all about!
