On-boarding generally starts during the recruitment process and then involves new hire orientation which covers the required compliance and HR information. This module is designed to assist the on-boarding process by delivering a list of training tasks and or activities related to the new hires role to their smartphone.
The on-boarding module welcomes each new hire via SMS/email and serves as a checklist of the tasks and activities they are expected to complete for their specific role in the company.
As the new hire goes through each specified time period they check off the tasks as they are completed. If some of the tasks are not completed, notifications are sent to the appropriate managers to follow up with and assist the new hire.
Having an on-boarding schedule accomplishes two things:
Ensures new hires do not fall between the cracks
Demonstrates the company's commitment to the new team member
Typically this process continues throughout the first 3 months of employment at which point the new hire continues their development participating in the department's on-going training sessions.
