How the Quest Works

The Onboarding Quest is a chat-based, coaching-like experience that drives meaningful conversations, powerful ideas, and "a-ha!" moments around innovation. This approach enables the rapid, lasting adoption of innovative behaviors in your organization. We do this by:



Completions indicate that users have awareness and understanding of a topic.



Positive activation checks show that users have followed through and taken specific actions.



Insights demonstrate that users have reflected on their experiences in a way that reinforces the desired mindsets.

Social Engagement

'Likes' and comments tell us that a user's insights are positively impacting others in the group and are initiating social learning.

The Challenges

Successful employee onboarding is crucial to employee and business success. According to research by Glassdoor, successful onboarding can improve employee retention by 82%. Research by the SHRM Foundation indicates that effective onboarding can increase performance by up to 11%. Our Onboarding Quest activates employee curiosity, getting them up to speed quickly and shortening their time to value. The 10 challenges encourage participants to take meaningful actions and be inquisitive about their new role, colleagues, and company.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Yes. Our quests drive the adoption of new behaviors and habits, and the best way to do this is by giving people the opportunity to practice and repeat.

    We do this in the form of a 10-day Quest. Each day, for the duration of the Quest, a participant accepts a bite-sized challenge. The challenge will introduce an offline activity to complete between online sessions. Once complete, a user will then come back and reflect on the experience of trying new behaviors. Reflecting on our experiences drives behavior change in a short time.

  • Designated administrators will have access to the "Manage" section of Cognician, which is our reporting dashboard.

    The "Manage" section gives administrators a collection of helpful information about participants and their activities on the platform. For example, every time someone uses a cog (short for "coaching guide", which is what we call a learning module at Cognician), the system logs their actions so that administrators can view the learner’s journey, how many cogs have been completed, and where the team seems to be struggling.

    Administrators can monitor general participant progress and export CSV documents that contain cog completion data and even the insights shared by the users.

  • Yes. We have a variety of Quests available, tailored to help you activate behavior change when it matters.

  • Yes. Cognician adheres to a data privacy model whereby privacy protections overlay most existing security protection mechanisms and the focus and investment is applied across People, Processes, and Technology.
