What is onboarding? Onboarding is the process of integrating a new employee with a company and its culture, as well as getting a new hire the tools and information needed to become a productive member of the team. As this is one of the first processes your new hire will experience with your organization, having an exceptional onboarding process speaks volumes about your company or organization. Offering electronic onboarding provides a comfortable and organized experience where new hires can complete all their necessary paperwork, including their W-4 and I-9.
Typically, your HR department is responsible for a wide variety of tasks, everything from resolving workplace issues, keeping employees up to date on company policies, ensuring employee certifications are current, and much more. For many, the onboarding process has become a tedious process of paperwork and training. While some HR professionals have settled for this unpleasant and complicated process, dreading every time a new employee joins the team, you now have an easier and more efficient option available. With so much on your plate, electronic onboarding will give you more time to focus on your company’s core goals.

Onboarding is a new hire’s first impression of your organization. The onboarding process should be the entry point for new hires, not setting them up for an early exit. Ensuring your onboarding is effective is an essential aspect to the growth and stability of your organization. A successful onboarding allows new hires to start confidently and comfortably in their new role. While poorly planned onboardings can give new hires the impression, your company is disorganized and in disarray.
