Why is the onboarding process so important?

Having a successful onboarding strategy is key to the success of any delivery or logistics business. Onboarding helps businesses to quickly engage new talent and create a positive environment for new subcontractors, helping them to start working more efficiently. 


Within self-employment, and in particular the last-mile delivery sector, subcontractors hop from job to job for several reasons such as pay and the wider self-employment experience. Ensuring that you are creating a successful onboarding process is vitally important not only for the long-term success of your business but also for your subcontractors themselves.
