The introduction of new employees can be a costly process, so how can you make it simpler?

The introduction of new employees can be a costly process, so how can you make it simpler?

In a recent article on Human Resources Executives Online, Cesar Fernandez outlined the many advantages that automation of on-boarding processes has for HR departments. Time once spent on the bureaucratic minutia involved in the hiring of a new employee can now be focused on the actual person soon to be employed.

Fernandez suggests that using software to handle workflow can free up HR recruiters to build a relationship with the new hire and ease his or her transition into the day-to-day work life of the business. Having a tool that can manage paperwork and make the initial vetting process smoother can be invaluable. It can also help in the actual selection of prospective workers, saving the amount of resumes and cover letters recruiters might have to sift through and providing them with time to perform their other functions at a higher level.

But even "beyond handling procedural tasks, automation allows HR professionals to become change agents at their companies, leading the initiative of improving and strengthening corporate culture," says Fernandez. The expedition of on-boarding can have a domino effect throughout the rest of the company and lead to greater productivity as a whole.
