In today’s turbulent marketplace it is now more important than ever before to provide quality experiences for your employees. Employee retention rates hit a record low in March of 2020 (1).
87% of HR professionals consider employee retention to be the highest priority (2). This is likely due to the fact that attrition significantly impacts an organizations profits. In fact, improved retention rates can increase a company’s profits by as much as four times (3).
One of the best ways businesses can improve employee retention rates today is by focusing on providing quality employee experiences. This can be done by strategically implementing transformational HR practices.

We recently helped a business leader in the tech sector implement new HR technology. This technology was used to improve employee experiences. After implementation it was able to raise engagement and increase employee retention rates.

One of the most common complaints included delayed response times from the HR department. Employees who were surveyed also expressed feeling frustrated by having limited access to information regarding company policies and procedures.
In addition to an updated onboarding process, they were in need of an HR transformation. We helped them put a chatbot called Leyla in place to assist them with several different hr functions and services. Leyla had 3 specific features that helped improve employee experiences. The chatbot came with pre-loaded intents, pre-built integrations and had adaptive capabilities.

Leyla came pre-loaded with more than 250 different intents to help kick start different potential conversations and scenarios. These intents were designed to help employees better navigate the onboarding process. Several intents were also created to answer more general questions about policies and procedures.
Feature 2: Pre-built integrations
Leyla was designed to help increase the access of pertinent information for employees. Her design was mobile responsive so employees could reach the chatbot and interact with her using any device.
Leyla was also built with the potential to easily integrate with leading human resources management systems and LMS software. This feature not only sped up the HR process but made performance management and updates simpler.
