We really wanted to bring in a system that would help us recruit and on-board in a consistent manner. The recruitment and onboarding is pretty much seamless now.

Zena Boaks,
Chief Human Resources Officer


Our employees are now more aware of the company vision, because it’s visible from day one. They go into Ascender onboarding and they can see what the objectives are.

We want new team members to have a brief overview of our values, ELT and any overarching polices prior to starting. Feedback from new team members is that they are impressed with the system, how professional it feels, how easy it is to use.
