Onboarding and offboarding

Getting started
When a new client starts using SpeakInConfidence they are allocated an account manager that works with them through the on-boarding process to ensure a successful launch. This includes providing of materials to guide them through the pre-launch process, online administration training, marketing collateral.

The client also gets access to our comprehensive online support area with resources for administrators, managers and users.

The account manager then works with the client regularly post-launch to ensure that they continue to get the best out of SpeakInConfidence.

Service interface
Customisation available
Description of customisation
The system is highly customisable so the client is in control of whether they are using it for employee/stakeholder engagement and staff feedback, idea discussion or whistleblowing, harassment and bullying.
The system allows for a number of administrators within the client who can alter settings and administer the system at any time through a web interface.
Customisation of the service is enabled in two key areas:

(1) Messaging on landing pages and inside the system; and

(2) System settings.

Key system settings which can be customised are:

(a) Whether staff anonymous dialogue is 1:1 manager, 1 to manager plus admin, 1 to all managers;

(b) What categories (topics) and management (responders) are on the system, and whether particular topics are linked to management most suitable to handle them;

(c) What reports are received;

(d) Whether forums are enabled;

(e) Whether push questions are enabled and if so for whom;

(f) Periods for reminders, suspensions (for anti-misuse);

(g) Whether staff are asked to select some area/function identifiers so patterns within the organisation can be more clearly identified;

(h) Other customisation options, such as changing the theme, are available on request and at additional cost.


Independence of resources
The WorkInConfidence service is automatically monitored to ensure that there is always sufficient capacity to meet the needs of all clients. Any potential issues are highlighted and additional capacity can be added within 30 minutes.
