Pain Point: Hiring and Retaining Top Talent

Hiring and retaining top talent is a continuous challenge for businesses. It’s not enough to simply hire skilled individuals; you need to ensure that they feel welcomed, informed, and valued from day one. For decades, we’ve been helping companies attract and retain quality hires, but now we have a more personal, innovative solution to share. If you’re feeling this pain point, it’s time to say goodbye to high turnover rates and instead say hello to meaningful employee engagement. In this blog, we’ll explore the common challenges associated with workforce management and share a solution we’re excited about.

Pain Point:
Employee onboarding is a crucial process that often gets overlooked or under-prioritized. Many organizations still rely on outdated methods that don’t fully meet the needs and expectations of a modern workforce.

Here are some common issues that businesses face with more traditional onboarding methods:

1. Lack of Personalization: One-size-fits-all approaches don’t make new hires feel special or valued. A generic onboarding experience can leave employees feeling like just another face in the crowd.

2. Information Overload: Overloading new employees with information can be overwhelming. Traditional methods often present new hires with a stack of paperwork, manuals, and processes, leading to overload.

3. Disconnect Between Departments: Miscommunication and a lack of coordination between HR, hiring managers, and new employees can lead to confusion and inefficiencies. This disconnect can result in missed opportunities to provide a smooth onboarding experience.

4. High Turnover Rates: Without a well-structured onboarding program, employees are more likely to leave their jobs in the early stages. High turnover rates can be a costly issue for organizations, both in terms of time and resources.

The Solution:
Think Patented offers an innovative and comprehensive employee onboarding program that addresses these issues head-on.

Here’s what makes our solution stand out:


  • Our program starts with a personalized email from top leaders to create an immediate connection with new hires. This personal touch helps new employees feel like valued members of the organization.
  • You can tailor onboarding experiences to each individual, recognizing that every employee is unique and deserves a unique welcome.

Ongoing Communication:

  • We make it possible to maintain regular and open communication with the employee, HR, and hiring managers throughout the onboarding process. This communication ensures a seamless transition, minimizing any potential gaps in understanding or expectations.
  • Continuous support and feedback channels help employees feel equipped and supported from day one.

A Sense of Belonging:

  • You want new employees to feel like part of the family from day one. With our program, you can make clear your commitment to inclusivity, collaboration, and a supportive work environment.
  • This sense of belonging is nurtured through personal connections, regular check-ins, and a commitment to making new hires feel at home within your organization.

Additional Benefits:
In addition to our personalized onboarding program, we also offer the following solutions to enhance the employee experience:

Promotional Welcome Kits: Thoughtfully designed welcome kits provide a warm reception, complete with branded merchandise, office essentials, and a personalized touch. These kits go beyond standard office supplies to create a tangible connection with our brand.

Print On Demand/Automated Work Anniversary and Employee Birthday Cards: Celebrate milestones and special occasions by automating the distribution of cards. These small gestures can have a big impact on employee morale, reinforcing the company’s commitment to its employees and their well-being.

Why do modern methods for hiring and retention matter?

  1. Increased Employee Engagement:

According to a study by Gallup, employees who feel engaged are 59% less likely to look for a new job.

  1. Positive First Impressions:

The first impression matters. A study by Glassdoor found that companies with a strong onboarding process improve new hire retention by 82%.

  1. Recognition and Appreciation:

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) reports that employee recognition programs significantly contribute to employee retention. Print materials like work anniversary and birthday cards, as well as other recognition tools, can enhance an employee’s sense of value and belonging within the organization.

Hiring and retaining employees can be a challenge. Our innovative employee onboarding program, complemented by promotional welcome kits and automated celebration cards, ensures that every new hire feels valued, informed, and well-supported right from the start. By addressing the common pitfalls of traditional onboarding, we can help you pave the way for employee success while creating lasting connections within our company. So say goodbye to the old way and hello to a new way, from Think Patented!
