MindTickle Helps HCL Decrease New Hire “Pre Join” Drop Out Rate by 90%

San Francisco, CA, November 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- MindTickle, http://www.mindtickle.com/, announces a new case study on how their online learning technology was able to help HCL significantly reduce the drop-out rates of their millennial audience in a “pre-join” program. More than 60% of the audience participated voluntarily in the pre-start date activities. The recruiting team at HCL was also able to more accurately predict the no-shows or those who would not be accepting offers to that they could adjust their staffing plans.

HCL http://www.hcltech.com/ is a Global IT Services company with offices in 31 countries and 90,000 employees worldwide. In 1999, they went public in an IPO offering their software-led IT solutions, remote infrastructure management, engineering, and R&D services. HCL is continuing to grow their revenue and is consistently looking for ways to be more efficient in their new hire onboarding.

The company was looking for an online platform that could engage new hires between the day of offer and the day of joining, promote Day 1 readiness through online pre-boarding, reduce pre-join churn and better predict their hiring needs.

HCL leveraged MindTickle’s cloud based platform that allowed HCL to create online learning communities for new joiners and deliver pre-boarding content in an engaging manner. This helped to increase HCL’s branding with new joiners, engagement between the company and the new hires and also increase the preparedness of the company’s hires.

The candidates were presented with individualized tasks through MindTickle’s platform and were rewarded with new materials as they completed each task. Learning was treated much like a game where they could earn badges and “level up” as they went through the content.

"Gamification modules are customizable, can be deployed in weeks and are easy to update. There are roles for which gamification works perfectly. As a result, it can become a critical tool in the hands of the organization," said Naveen Narayanan, Global Head Talent Acquisition at HCL.

The dropout rate of the cohort that participated within MindTickle’s cloud based platform was 9x lower than those who did not. HCL was able to cut their pre-join churn by almost 90% and could more effectively predict whether a candidate would accept an offer through participation which helped them more accurately plan for their staffing needs.
