Hiring Managers are excited about new hires and eagerly await the start date. In some cases, a department may have been short-staffed for some time. Or, there are plans to have the new hire work on new initiatives. Either way, Day 1 for the new hire is set to be promising.
This is exactly why an online onboarding system can help setup and keep that momentum. With onboarding, all of the new hire paperwork can be completed electronically, even before the new hire’s start date. Be sure to comply with applicable wage and hour laws when new hires are permitted to complete onboarding outside of working hours.
From any online computer, the new hire can go through the steps of filling out each form. When an electronic form is completed, a highly visible checkmark appears on the checklist. If the new hire needs to retrieve a piece of documentation –– such as a driver’s license and Social Security card or a passport –– there is a “save and exit” feature for their easy return.
With all of the new hire paperwork completed and submitted, the HR Manager can confirm to the Hiring Manager that the new hire is all set to start. Learn more about how to automate your onboarding system by watching our free webinar.
