Onboarding Software Solutions

You’ve advertised the position, received and filtered lots of applications, interviewed numerous candidates, held second interviews, even third interviews, offered the job to an amazing candidate and they accept!! Great work, you’ve done your job filling the post…but what do you do next?

Depending on the position, there will be numerous tasks and different documents that will be required to be sent, completed and checked before the candidate even arrives at your offices. If you are in a busy HR department with many new arrivals at any one time, it can be a headache to keep track on each and every document and whether or not the candidate has confirmed receipt etc.

You have to get the process right, not only to do your job correctly and to ensure that the new employee is engaged throughout the process and is content and productive when they arrive at your business.

  • What impression do you want new employees to walk away with?
  • What do new employees need to know about the culture and work environment of your business?
  • What kind of goals do you want to set for new employees?
  • How will you gather feedback on the process and measure its success?
