How the Right HR Software Can Improve Employee Onboarding

by Pat Collopy on Feb 26, 2018 2:12:38 PM

Onboarding is rarely the easy process that employees and employers both wish it was, but that has the potential to change—and it should. Studies have found that organizations with a standard onboarding process experience increases in retention and greater new hire productivity overall.

Suffice it to say: onboarding matters. But that doesn’t mean it has to be the blizzard of faxed signatures, loose papers, and stress that you’ve become accustomed to. With the right HR software, onboarding can be easy, organized, and simple. Here’s how:

Paperless Onboarding

Everyone knows the old saying, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” This expression perfectly describes the value of upgrading your onboarding process. One major benefit of implementing HR software is seamless organization that allows you to onboard new hires without paper, in less time and with greater ease.

How much time and energy do you think businesses waste trying to recover lost documents or figuring out where a new hire is in the onboarding process? Keep track of everything from tax forms, to resumes, to employee handbooks, to specific details about the new hire. The right HR software acts as a portal where employees and employers both have access to all of the information they need for the onboarding process to go off without a hitch.

As you know, it’s important to not lose sight of a new hire amidst all of the potential distractions a company faces. Software allows you to know exactly where the new hire is in the onboarding process, which helps improve the training process and ultimately produces better performance results. Tracking also allows the employer to pinpoint problem areas and evaluate the efficiency of their onboarding process overall.

There’s no denying that we are well into the digital age and that any process that isn’t paperless is well behind the curve. At CPS, we believe that HR software should simplify the entire onboarding process and engage your new hires, helping you to create great first impressions and long-term, happy employees.

Make onboarding easy for you and your employees by implementing effective and simple HR software at your company.
