Public sector tech partner seeks innovative onboarding kits

Agilisys is the technology and transformation partner for the public sector and has been for over 20 years. Through digital technology, they enable health and social care providers to boost efficiency, provide better patient care and improve the working lives of thousands of staff.

In addition, Agilisys works with government authorities and local councils, using technology to streamline processes, cut costs and free-up staff time to focus on making citizens’ lives better. Law enforcement and criminal justice is yet another sector that benefits from their digital expertise. They also support major events such as Comic Relief, Sport Relief and Children in Need.

Keeping citizens and communities healthy, safe and thriving is at the heart of all Agilisys’ ethos. Just as they help their clients improve people’s lives and empower their workforce, they strive to achieve this for their own employees too.

To prove how they value their staff as highly as their technology, they approached THEMPC to create a welcome pack for new employees. Agilisys wanted a new employee welcome kit that would supply their new starters with a laptop and everything they would need for their role, whilst also making them feel engaged and welcome.

Making a positive first impression on new recruits

Like many companies these days, Agilisys supports flexible and remote working. Their #Agilelife approach allows staff to work hours amenable to their lifestyle. Onboarding packs are a brilliant way to achieve a tangible connection with new recruits, which is especially important in a virtual world. Their vision was for THEMPC to create an Agilisys-branded welcome box that would encourage a positive employee onboarding experience, containing:

  • Laptop and laptop stand
  • A keyboard and a battery-operated mouse
  • Apple air pods
  • Sprint charging cable – a lightning-fast, retractable micro-USB charging cable
  • Stylish black ‘Jagger’ ball pen with a luxury tactile feel
  • Black 20mm dye sub lanyards featuring a safety break and metal hook attachment, with a lanyard card holder
  • Smart tide bottle – a double-walled, thermal-insulated, vacuum travel bottle suitable for any time or place
  • Jelly Tots sweets

Agilisys is a leading tech company and their dynamic culture attracts the best and brightest talent. The branded onboarding pack needed to fit the entrepreneurial, determined, tenacious and adaptable personalities who had chosen to join their successful team.

A bespoke staff welcome pack – designed, sourced, printed, produced and delivered

Using our combined expertise in design, print and packaging, we got to work tailoring a welcome pack for new employees joining Agilisys. Keen to meet their unique brand specifications and company messaging, we collaborated HR specialists at Agilisys, as follows:

  • Mocked-up a shortlist of preliminary designs in 2D format, for initial consideration
  • Sourced a range of high quality yet cost-effective contents from our supplier network
  • Created a prototype of the frontrunning box for approval, giving the client peace of mind around what the final result would look – and feel – like, with all the items inside
  • Facilitated a free, flexible and open culture of feedback, suggesting alternatives until we arrived at the ideal solution
  • Made the necessary changes to layout and content until the box passed development stages

The lasting impact of a warm welcome

THEMPC’s extensive suite of in-house production capabilities allowed us to work flexibly with  Agilisys, taking their new employee welcome kits from concept through to delivery.

  • We created the kits with an innovative internal flap, allowing us to add in a personalised welcome letter
