Onboard new employees quickly and professionally


The Problem

Paper based onboarding processes for new employees are slow, cumbersome and highly inefficient, often leading to first choice candidates taking alternative offers due to the delays. The candidates who do accept the offer can encounter various problems due to the manual process that can generate a negative first impression of the business, that is often hard to change. All of this can be easily avoided with a cloud based onboarding solution.

The Solution

Onboard Express is easily implemented as it requires no new hardware or software, and delivers a return on investment within months and improves efficiency by more than 100%, and significantly reduces HR operational costs. This is achieved by implementing an automated employment contract assembly solution, including a workflow approval process, as well as delivering the contract and personalised onboarding pack via a secure internet portal.

The Onboarding Process

Onboard Express starts with onboarding packs being prepared, reviewed and sent electronically. The candidate then reviews the offer, enters details only once, which pre-populates all eForms, and can digitally approve them online. Once accepted, the system sends forms and documents to relevant departments, e.g. IT and payroll, for processing.

The Dashboard

This is the dashboard view that a HR Manager would work with. It provides a snapshot of the status of all candidates being onboarded (e.g. if under peer review or prepare offer stage) and allows you to create new candidates and onboarding packs.

Contract Assembly

This screen indicates how the contract is assembled. The HR Manager adds in known fields to prepare the letter of offer and all relevant forms, policy documents and documents relevant to the specific candidate. Once completed, it is sent off for internal reviews.

Candidate Portal

A new candidate receives a secure login via email to a candidate portal which contains a letter of offer and all relevant forms and policy documents that have been pre-prepared. It generally includes a video of the company and other marketing material.

Digital Acceptance

Once a new candidate is happy to accept the letter of offer and all forms and policy documents, the system allows electronic forms to be legally binding, with additional digital security validation steps. The system provides a full audit trail of the offer and policy acceptances.

Case Study

A large Australian financial institution regularly provide induction packs and forms for new employees, temporary staff and contractors and for transferring staff internally. They had 10-20 separate forms that had to be completed, were couriered and then scanned back in for record keeping.

Our client implemented Onboard Express and now all core personal information is loaded into the system and the applicant is sent an email requesting document completion. Information is entered only once and populated onto all forms. Once completed, forms are signed, returned or digitally approved. The system then redirects the forms to relevant departments for processing, e.g. payroll and for security checking.

  • Inductees don't have to rekey data onto multiple forms, and errors are eliminated
  • HR administration costs to process new applicants are significantly reduced
  • Documents don't go missing and are stored safely online
