Why improve Employee Onboarding?

Onboarding is the HR activity of integrating new hires into your organization. A solid onboarding process makes new employees feel comfortable, gets them to be productive as quickly as possible and helps retain your best talent. In most cases, onboarding is paper-intensive, tedious and wastes too much time.

What is Employee Onboarding Process Automation?

New Employee Onboarding Process Automation

Today's HR departments are faced with a challenging environment. Talent is scarce and the competition for the most in-demand skills is fierce. Retaining your best employees is harder than ever. Attracting skilled employees and retaining them has become HR's #1 priority.

Why is onboarding important?

An effective employee onboarding program makes new hires feel like they are part of a caring workplace rather than just another cog in the wheel. From day one, it sets the right expectations from each side and helps new employees become productive in their new roles. Studies have shown that effective onboarding can improve retention rates by up to 52% and time to productivity by 60%.

What is onboarding?

The onboarding process starts with basics like completing new hire forms (both government and internal) and ensuring that employees have the equipment and access they need to become productive quickly. It may extend for several months and involve HR, managers and co-workers.

Since many organizations don't have the resources to purchase expensive HRM systems, the onboarding process is often haphazard. On day one, new employees are forced to spend hours filling out lengthy forms on paper. Errors and omissions are common resulting in wasted time and lost productivity.

How does automated onboarding help?

Digitizing your new employee forms and automating the associated process is essential for digital business transformation. Automation makes your HR department more efficient and allows them to spend more time on talent acquisition and retention.
