Improve the process for onboarding new employees with best practices and automation
The new employee onboarding process is your company’s first opportunity to give new hires a sense of:
The numbers associated with new employee experience bear out the importance of good onboarding:
The hiring process and the employee onboarding process set a tone for an employee's career with your company. Is the process an afterthought? Is it poorly organized, inconsistent and disrespectful? You may have had a poor onboarding experience yourself and thought "Did I make the right decision accepting this job?"
Some ideas for information to include in an onboarding plan:
Using onboarding tools like Onboarding Checklists are helpful for small companies who don't deal with a lot of hiring and only bring on a few new employees a month. However, larger companies, especially in the enterprise space can find such checklists less helpful when dealing with tens or hundreds of employees globally each month. In situations like this, best practices dictate the use of an automated workflow system for an effective onboarding process and a more effective employee.
Automating the process for onboarding new employees ensures not only a standardized, consistent and organizationally-sanctioned approach but it provides hiring managers with a much easier experience with their new hires. Customized employee portals house intake forms and automated workflows route information around the organization. The same system is used by the hiring manager, the employee, and HR, which ensures everyone has access to the information they need. Manual onboarding programs may have all the right pieces for effective onboarding but not the automation and process management to bring it all together.
Workflow automation provides a custom onboarding software solution and can be used for the entire Employee Lifecycle from pre-hire to offboarding. Here are some examples:
The onboarding process sets the tone for the employee’s relationship with their new company. If the process is disconnected and poorly organized, the employee’s chances of success are greatly diminished while the chances of turnover increase.
