PageUpPeople™, a Multinational Talent Management solutions provider, recently announced details of its integration with Yammer, Inc., the leading provider of Enterprise Social Networks. Through this integration, PageUp People will include Yammer’s social networking functionality in its Onboarding module, helping its multinational clients to improve their onboarding strategies.

Research from Bersin & Associates suggests that 90 percent of employees make a decision to stay with a company in the first six months of employment. Therefore, it is crucial that organizations implement successful onboarding processes that engage new hires right from the start. Internal social networking has proven to be a powerful tool in engaging employees and fostering collaboration. PageUp People recognizes that value by  including Yammer’s unique enterprise social networking solutions as part of its unifiedtalentmanagementplatform.

PageUp People will be offering Yammer as an option to clients setting up new onboarding portals, and existing clients can include this value-added functionality in their programs as well. Customers using PageUp People’s Onboarding module will benefit from a seamless integration with the Yammer embedded widget, allowing new employees to connect with their new colleagues almost as soon as they accept the job offer.

Such functionality is especially useful for PageUp People’s multinational clients, many of whom are expanding into high growth markets and increasing hiring across different geographies. Through enterprise social networking, these organizations can improve their onboarding processes and allow their employees to feel a part of the team, despite geographical distance and cultural differences, and hit the ground running even before  their first day.

“A positive onboarding experience will ensure employees are engaged right from the start, and in turn increase the value of the employment brand to attract top talent to the organization,” said PageUp People Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Pamela Bartz. “PageUp People has been using Yammer internally for a number of years, and it has greatly improved not only the way we onboard new hires, but also how we communicate across the company. We realized that our clients could benefit from enterprise social networking as well, and we are pleased to be able to provide this functionality to customers seeking a more effective onboarding strategy.”
