CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2018--SilkRoad ( www.silkroad.com ), a global leader in strategic enterprise onboarding and talent activation to drive business outcomes, announced today three significant enhancements to SilkRoad Activate Strategic Onboarding: Offers, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Offboarding capabilities.

SilkRoad Activate Offers: For many organizations, creating employment offers is a manual process that is difficult to standardize and manage at scale. The SilkRoad Activate Offers solution streamlines the enterprise employment offer process to improve talent acquisition and onboarding effectiveness. It enables the creation, approval routing, digital signature, tracking and analysis of offers, and serves as the critical first step in strategic new hire onboarding. SilkRoad Activate M&A Onboarding: Onboarding and retaining talent is critically important to the success of merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions. SilkRoad Activate M&A Onboarding addresses administrative and compliance tasks associated with onboarding many new employees in a short timeframe following a corporate transaction. Just as important, this solution helps introduce and welcome acquired employees to their new organization’s culture and guides them through the transition. As a result, SilkRoad software supports the successful integration of employees into the new organization to retain more talent, avoid turnover and optimize the value of the investment. SilkRoad Activate Offboarding: Consistent and responsible offboarding of departing employees improves productivity, strengthens the employer brand and protects organizations from risk. SilkRoad Activate Offboarding automates critical offboarding tasks and coordinates activities across all stakeholders to save time, improve accuracy and ensure required processes are completed.

“This new evolution of SilkRoad Activate supports the complete employee lifecycle of transitions,” said Lilith Christiansen, Vice President of Onboarding Solutions for SilkRoad. “Employees take on a number of roles throughout their tenure, and we continue to create an intentional onboarding program that supports each employee journey, using a strategic approach.”

SilkRoad is onsite at the HR Technology Conference & Expo in Las Vegas (Sept. 11-14) to showcase the enhancements and discuss findings from its new global survey, “ The Awakening: Onboarding Emerges as a Strategic Driver.”
