Bringing successful candidates into an organisation should be the easy part of the hiring process.
You’ve done the recruitment, whittled it down to the best applicants, held the interviews and the successful candidates have accepted their new roles.
It often feels like the end of an exhausting process.
But, of course, it’s not and it’s the next part of the hiring cycle where so many HR teams can find themselves coming unstuck.
A recent study, commissioned by Webonboarding, found that nearly a quarter (24 percent) of HR management time is spent handling onboarding related tasks.
Employee onboarding covers all of the tasks required to convert successful candidates into new starters – from contract signing and reference checks to welcome packs and first-day admin preparations.
Pain of paperwork chores
The reason it’s so problematic is that more than two thirds (68 percent) of UK hiring teams are still using traditional communication methods to handle this tricky intermediary phase.
It creates a slow and inefficient onboarding process that can take weeks to complete as paperwork is posted out and information is chased up via phone calls and emails.
It’s a long, grinding paperwork task that eats up HR time and resources and can significantly increase the risks of successful candidates dropping out.
So what if your HR team could escape from this traditional approach?
