Automating checklists for compliance and onboarding in the renewable energy industry

Landsvirkjun are the largest generators of electricity in Iceland, and one of the largest producers of renewable energy in all of Europe.


Needed an updated system to ensure proper onboarding of new hires and a way to automate manual checklist processes.


Landsvirkjun introduced an accessible pre-boarding and onboarding experience, with easy reporting tools to ensure training completion.


Digital systems in place to help managers cut down on paperwork, stay on track with compliance demands, and provide flexible training for the day-to-day.

Powering up the onboarding process

Landsvirkjun, an Icelandic renewable energy company, were looking to update their approach to new employee onboarding. Their previous onboarding often provided new employees with too much information and not enough time to process it all. They realized a digital solution was the way to solve their onboarding troubles. At the same time, a digital solution could also support their need for a documented checklist process.

Now, we initiate onboarding even before employees start working for us. This gives them the advantage to get to know us before they even begin their first day.

Energizing new employees with checklist efficiency

Switching to the eloomi learning solution has created a lot of possibilities for onboarding new hires. Pre-boarding allows new hires access to the learning platform before they even have their first day. This helps the new employees to gain a better understanding of the company.

The digital onboarding process also allows Landsvirkjun to be more precise with the information they provide employees. They can be trained in more general subjects and in ones that are closely relevant to their new job. The easy insight overviews help keep track of who has completed the training, showing statistics with the ability to follow up on groups and individuals.

Landsvirkjun also found a lot of use out of the checklist functionality. By using digitalized checklists, they reduced a great deal of manual work by removing the need for printing and scanning in order to document completed tasks. Instead, users are now assigned specific checklists. A quick tick of the box on any mobile device and the job is done.

The checklist function is great for compliance. It is a tool that helps you document who finished a task, when the task was completed, and even comment on a specific task to ensure 100% compliance, every time. This simple addition ensures that everyone is doing their part to make Landsvirkjun the best it can be & help build a better future by getting their employees started on the right foot.
