The employee onboarding process for an HR admin typically involves several steps to ensure that new employees are smoothly integrated into the company and provided with the necessary resources and information to start their roles effectively. It's a critical process that can help new employees acclimate to the company culture, understand their roles and responsibilities, and develop the skills necessary to succeed in their new positions.
The onboarding process starts before the employee's first day and can continue for several weeks or months, depending on the organization's complexity and the employee's role. Effective onboarding can result in higher employee engagement, lower turnover rates, and faster time to productivity. It can also provide a positive first impression of the company, which can help attract and retain top talent.
You can configure the onboarding form for an employee, review the onboarding details to onboard the employee successfully, accept/reject the details, and create a list of document types that you want to collect from the employees. The process also helps you to ensure that the employee reads and acknowledges different policies and forms during the onboarding process.
