cfactor’s Virtual Day 1 Solution Cited for Its Innovation in Providing Employee Orientation Experiences That Redefine the Onboarding Process


“One of the primary goals of the HR Technology Conference is to introduce the thousands of conference attendees to the most awesome new and innovative products that we've seen in 2013,” said Steve Boese.

cfactor Works Inc. (cfactor), developer of socially infused Human Resource technologies, today announced that its Virtual Day 1 solution has been selected for presentation during the 2013 HR Technology(R) Conference and Expo’s “Awesome New Technologies for HR” session. Virtual Day 1, a component of cfactor’s Onboarding product suite, provides a comprehensive means to acclimate and welcome new employees to an organization through moderated, highly dynamic sessions.

“One of the primary goals of the HR Technology Conference is to introduce the thousands of conference attendees to the most awesome new and innovative products that we've seen in 2013,” said Steve Boese, conference co-chair and Inside HR Tech columnist for Human Resource Executive(R). “We chose the top six solutions based on a combination of factors -- usability, an innovative approach to solve an HR challenge and the ability to help HR leaders and their companies succeed. And cfactor’s Virtual Day 1 solution really grabbed us – not only for its innovation for providing an immersive, fun and interactive employee orientation experience; but also for truly redefining the onboarding process for the 21st century.”

While each company can tailor the content to their own programs within the Virtual Day 1 solution, common sessions include engaging new media to introduce:

  •     Key leadership, culture and goals
  •     Benefits and 401K packages
  •     Company specific programs

In the sessions, employees are also empowered to explore interactive kiosks to connect with colleagues and mentors, view department/location specific information, and even start to complete their new hire paperwork online. Embedded real-time chat enables employees to ask questions of the moderator and virtually connect with other participants.

“It is a great honor to be distinguished with a coveted 'Awesome New Technologies for HR' presenter spot for Virtual Day 1,” said Cary Schuler, Co-founder and CEO of cfactor. "cfactor is on the forefront of delivering innovative, employee-friendly solutions that enable companies to unify and enhance their workforce technologies. We have seen that by providing our clients an exciting and collective new employee orientation experience through Virtual Day 1, it absolutely drives significant efficiency gains in the amount of time required to orient employees. In fact, one client has decreased the time required to conduct orientations by over 90% - from approximately 37 hours per week to 3 hours per week.”

The "Awesome New Technologies for HR" general session will be held on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 from 1:45 - 3:00 p.m. and is open to full conference attendees of the upcoming 16th Annual HR Technology Conference & Exposition, taking place October 7 - 9, 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
