Erwin Van Der Viist, Founder and CEO of Speakap, refers to preboarding as “the new onboarding.” It’s an effort geared primarily toward the Millennial and Gen Z populations, he says.
With Millennials dominating today’s workplaces, it’s important for organizations to connect with them in meaningful ways. For Millennials, that means “fostering a sense of purpose and fulfillment early on through platforms they find familiar,” Van Der Viist says.
