The Secret to Improving HR Onboarding

Onboarding is the most frequent task HR teams take on. This activity is crucial for service companies with a lot of employee attrition. Career transitions typically happen every two to three years for the general workforce, so reducing onboarding costs and time is a critical aspect of a successful HR team. Here we provide the steps to help your company to simplify the onboarding process and increase HR's productivity.

Onboarding Pain Points

The onboarding process usually involves time consuming tasks for both the new employee and the HR professional helping them. The filing and storage of repetitive information can make onboarding a huge chore. It is estimated that the mid-level onboarding time is around seven to 10 days. Some pain points HR professionals cite are:

  • The amount of time it takes to onboard employees
  • Keeping track of information such as phone numbers and email addresses of onboarding employees
  • Using paper-based forms that need to be filled out by the employee, making record keeping tedious and increasing the risk of potential data losses
  • Forcing employees to file several documents with the same information gives a bad first impression of the company
  • Many documents in separate emails make the documents more difficult for employees to complete
  • The dreaded days before weekly (or bi-weekly) payroll
  • The time it takes to keep track of the steps in communication with employees

Unfortunately, 32 percent of global executives say the onboarding they experienced was poor"

The Solution? HR Onboarding Automation

In order to get rid of these pain points, companies can implement Automation of the  Onboarding process. HR automation offers a cloud-based solution that integrates all third-party systems, and automates all the processes within it. This provides an opportunity for HR professionals to monitor all status updates and changes on one central dashboard.

With HR Onboarding Automation, HR can simply enter the preliminary information and give access to employees for self-service. The employee dashboard allows them to fill out their information in a single form, which then enables everything else to be filed automatically. This saves the HR team time and effort, and employees as well. Above all, HR Onboarding Automation increases the employee experience, satisfaction, and engagement levels.
