Employers are failing to build an effective onboarding program into standard business processes, which means they are losing the perfect opportunity to instill their values and corporate culture, and are at risk of stifling employees’ excitement and enthusiasm, according to Kelly Services Australia.

    Why not impress your candidates with a personalised web based onobarding experience? Technology such as HROnboard can completely eliminate paperwork involved in onboarding of staff, whilst creating a professional, user friendly and tailored onboarding experience for each staff member.
    Your new starter will be sent a personalized site with your corporate branding, which they enter to download their letter of offer, which they can legally accept online. They only have to enter their information once which will pre populate all of their new starter forms, which can also all be approved online. You can also include marketing material, videos, letters from your CEO and all your policies and procedures, to ensure that a new starter really understands your company and culture before starting.
    Information is then sent to IT and payroll, which means that everything a new starter needs on Day one can be set up and ready for their first day.
    The onboarinding experience can impress your new starrer and reinforce to them that they are joining a leading edge company that cares about their staff and embraces innovative technology.
    Some of the key results that Brookfield Multiplex achieved through using this technology have included:
    - Reduction of over 85% in total cost per welcome pack
    - 100 page new starter pack is now an entirely paperless process
    - Achieved an ROI within 1 year
    - Roles redesigned to avoid non redundant admin tasks and focus on value added tasks
    - Streamlined and automated, consistent process to send personalised offers to employees
    - Complete audit trail for employment online (SOX compliance if audited)
    - Comprehensive tracking and reporting to manage IT and payroll and their KPI's for helping onboard new starters
    - Enable a quick turnover time (including approvals and receiving offers - 10 days down to 20 minutes!) and reduced vacancy time per role.
