The Ultimate Solution to Onboarding Non-Desk Workers

How to Create a Successful Onboarding Process for Seasonal Workers in High Employee Turnover Factories?

Onboarding is one of the most critical steps when adding new employees to your workforce, but it's often overlooked or approached ineffectively. In many cases, companies have to onboard hundreds of seasonal workers every year-which creates massive time and resource waste due to inefficient processes and oversights. A good onboarding process will increase productivity, ensure that new hires stick around longer, and help reduce turnover rates (saving you money in the long run).

We'll quickly review some onboarding challenges most blue-collar employers face before diving into how to solve them with our new onboarding solution.

The Problems Factories Hiring Seasonal Workers Face during the Onboarding Process

Time wastage

Onboarding non-desk workers takes time and resources away from management, who are busy with other tasks such as creating new products or improving efficiency in existing ones. Proper onboarding takes a long time, causing delays in starting the actual job new employees get hired for. Thus, the factory ends up wasting time and money.

Poor communication

Language barriers and cultural differences can sometimes affect employee engagement and work efficiency. Many new employees come from different backgrounds and may not understand the company's primary language. Thus, it becomes difficult to integrate and engage with other team members.

Lack of materials

Because of the lack of sufficient instructions given to workers on their first day at work, they are unsure of what is expected of them, leading to many errors which waste valuable time and resources. Most companies often don't offer any training materials when hiring for an entry-level position. They simply ask employees to come in and start working immediately. While this approach can work sometimes, it usually leads to frustration for both parties.

Non-compliance with safety rules

Training is often too short, and attention to safety measures is little. In factories, safety rules are critical. However, many new employees fail to comply with them because of a lack of proper training. As a result, accidents happen all the time.

Yoho is the No.1 Solution to Your Factory's Onboarding Problems!

Our solution is a mobile app-based platform that helps you optimize your entire onboarding process by automating everything from training material creation to communication between managers and employees. Yoho offers countless mobile task management benefits that every factory needs to know about and take advantage of.

We believe that e-learning is the future of training employees. To ensure a successful onboarding process for deskless workers, factories should utilize Yoho's video-based training modules and its digital onboarding platform. Here are some of the main benefits of using Yoho during onboarding.

Digital instructions

Training workers through digital instructions on mobile devices is a practical and engaging way to inform them of critical safety guidelines, machine instructions, and on-the-job expectations. It's all available digitally in an easily digestible form.

Video content

Videos are more efficient for workers to understand and remember than written/listened to instructions. Video content allows workers to learn how to do their jobs quickly and correctly, leading to fewer errors on-the-job and, ultimately, fewer mistakes that waste time/money.

Reusable content library

The ability to reuse content uploaded in Yoho ensures you're using your time efficiently when creating new onboarding resources.

Automatic content translation

Yoho can automatically translate content to other languages. So, if a factory hires international workers, it can translate work instructions and enable the employee to understand them better.

Analytics and reporting features

Yoho allows management to track the progress of workers' training and skill development. Additionally, it has data analytics features and can create automatic reports. This saves time and resources wasted on keeping track of the onboarding progress of non-desk workers manually and individually.

Easy access

Yoho helps the seasonal blue-collar workers to access all the information they need directly on their phones. The app contains various modules such as step-by-step instructions, video training, and FAQs.
