Using Epoch, onboarding teams can schedule these sessions in advance, ensuring new hires have a clear roadmap for their onboarding journey.

See all data in one place

With Epoch, all onboarding data is centralized making it easy for onboarding teams to track progress and get a comprehensive overview of information across all sessions.

Teams can monitor event attendance including who has confirmed into the event, the number of participants, and the specific time and location for each session. Onboarding teams can also add new sessions to the training program at any time and any current participants will be automatically added to them.

Get one-click confirmations

When sending a Slack announcement for your onboarding program, new hires can RSVP to all sessions with one click.

On the Discover page, the multi-session onboarding series will have a badge showing it includes multiple sessions and the total number of sessions. By selecting the event page, new hires will find a complete overview of each session, including the title, description, date and time, and location details.

If a new hire has a scheduling conflict and needs to cancel their attendance in any session, they can do so directly on the event page or through Google Calendar. If their schedule changes, they can easily rejoin a session.
