Navigating the Onboarding Maze
In the bustling world of fintech startups, Lexop found itself grappling with a common yet critical challenge - onboarding.
As the company grew, the process of integrating new hires into the team became increasingly complex. The People Department and management were spending valuable time coordinating with hiring managers and personalizing onboarding experiences, especially for remote hires. The result? A drain on resources and a very manual onboarding experience for new employees.
A Smooth Onboarding Experience for All
Lexop knew they needed a change. They aimed to automate their onboarding process, create consistent onboarding plans, and empower new hires to be independent from day one. They wanted a solution that would not only streamline their process but also serve as a central reference point for new employees. Enter Softstart.
" The struggle with onboarding periods is that "the show must go on". In other words, as a manager, you have to continue your day-to-day tasks while spending time onboarding a new Lexoper. It can be overwhelming. However, Softstart enables you to juggle your duties in a more organized and graceful fashion. "
Amir Tajkarimi — CEO
"Starting a new role with a new company is always nerve-racking, no matter what level of position you're in. Even the most organized of people might feel as though they're missing something. Softstart allowed me to ease into my new role by providing guidance on what steps I needed to take to complete my training and would provide me with reminders when I needed them most."

Softstart's Onboarding Platform
Softstart's onboarding platform offered Lexop the tools they needed to transform their onboarding process. With features like onboarding templates, pulse surveys, video requests, and reminders, Softstart allowed Lexop to create a detailed and personalized onboarding experience for each new hire. The platform also provided a way for Lexop to track the onboarding progress in real-time and set up a buddy system for new employees.
One unique aspect of Lexop's onboarding process is the personal touch added by their CEO, Amir Tajkarimi. For every newcomer,
Amir uploads a video explaining the history of the company. After this he will book a time with the new employee to pitch Lexop to them (as if to an investor) and take time to answer any questions. This has been particularly beneficial for remote employees, allowing them to experience Lexop's culture even if they are not physically in the office.
A New Era of Onboarding at Lexop
The implementation of Softstart led to a significant improvement in Lexop's onboarding process. The platform allowed the People Department to automate many of their tasks, freeing up time for other important projects. New employees were able to ramp up their learning much faster, reducing the number of questions they had and allowing them to understand the company's tools, policies, and structure independently.
"I am really glad that Lexop used Softstart as an onboarding tool. It made my life a lot easier 😄"
