Delight Your New Hires with Our Latest Onboarding Enhancements

Add emojis and videos to your onboarding experience and text invites to your new hires!


Onboarding is your opportunity to make a great first (and lasting) impression on new employees by showcasing your company values and culture off the bat. Enhance communication with your employees during onboarding, before their first day, to boost retention and reduce new hire churn.  

Our latest onboarding enhancements bring new fun and functional capabilities for you to leverage to excite and impress any new hires.

Embed Videos & Add Emojis

We’ve added the ability to embed videos in all of our workflows. Add a personalized welcome video, so new hires know how much they’re valued from the start. 

Or, embed training videos so new employees can get familiar with your company and their role before their first day.

Use emojis to communicate in fun and dynamic ways in your workflows or in emails and texts sent through our Messages feature.

Text Onboarding Invites

Currently, texting is the preferred method of contact for many. Capture new hires’ personal phone numbers during the hiring workflow so you can text them the onboarding link directly. 

Easily customize the message (and even include a welcome video), introducing them to your company and directing them to begin onboarding in GoCo.
