Wren Kitchens wins a prestigious award for its outstanding and personalised enrolment process which provides new team members with an exceptionally warm and comprehensive welcome to the business.
The UK’s number one kitchen retailer and best place to work with 8,500 family members across the UK and USA, has secured the Best Online Candidate Experience award at the prestigious Onrec Online Recruitment Awards – now in its 16th year. Onrec is a source of expertise in the recruitment industry and supports human resource professionals, recruiters and job seekers.
Up against household names such as Tesco and Paddy Power Betfair, Wren Kitchens excelled ahead of the competition with its newly reinvigorated onboarding process which is a package developed in-house with personalised videos and engaging introductory content.
Wren launched the award-winning induction last year which saw those joining the business rating it 4.7 out of 5 for its friendly, and in-depth approach.
Victoria Fairbairn, Wren Kitchens People & performance Director, said: “For every single Wren family member, we’re truly committed to providing a world-class welcome to introduce them to the Wren way, our family culture and renowned passion in everything that we do.
“Before new team members even walk through our doors, it’s important that they feel valued which is why we recognised the importance of developing our enrolment package throughout their whole journey to create an exceptional start to their progressive career with Wren.”
The induction is developed to create a seamless, friendly and informative experience to immerse new starters into the world of Wren.
