One of the most time consuming elements of a new staff member joining an organisation is training them, collecting required documentation from them in order to start the role and introducing them to the workplace.
Running the process online means they can do these tasks before they even step foot in the door! Right off the phone call informing them they go the job, you can start the onboarding process.
It's not just about employee onboarding
Onboarding goes beyond just employees and new hires, you should be onboarding contractors, visitors and anyone else participating in your workplace. Furthermore, onboarding customers on their product and onboarding vendors who do business with you is important too!
Typically there are two main mediums that you can engage for your onboarding process: Online via the web and Mobile devices.
When you setup a dedicated employee onboarding portal, these two mediums are how your users will access it and engage in the courses, assessments, check lists, videos and online forms that make up your onboarding process.
If you've tallied up the time and it seems large... it might be time to move to an Employee Onboarding system to automate and improve these processes...
