The typical hiring and onboarding process in today's professional world can be a real challenge. Beyond the hours spent filling out forms and other routine tasks, the amount of paper and ink consumed by a single new hire is staggering. Add that up over a year's worth of new hires, and many businesses hemorrhage money through the use of materials. Until recently, this has been the best way to handle a required step in the hiring process. But today's technology offers better alternatives.
Make Paper a Thing of the Past
ExactHire's applicant tracking
and onboarding software
aim to inspire wholesale change through their innovative platforms. These solutions aim to make paper waste a relic of the past through application and onboarding systems that are fully paperless. Digital copies of documents, application materials and other relevant content have replaced stacks of papers and folders known to clutter HR desks. And with that change, these respective processes have grown even more efficient and increased accuracy in the hiring and onboarding process.
Enter Once, Populate Many Times
One of the biggest changes is in how forms and documents are filled out. Previous onboarding required new hires to fill out the same information across numerous documents, forms and other materials. ExactHire’s tool has remedied that problem with an auto-population feature installed right into the software. Now, when information is entered into the appropriate section on one form, that content is populated in the corresponding sections of every other applicable form. That cuts down on the time spent filling out paperwork.
Increased Security and Organization
All of your important documents, from applications to resumes in the applicant tracking software, to state and federal tax forms and direct deposit forms in the onboarding software, are stored on a secure software server and are accessible through the respective portal. This lets managers review the documents whenever they want and from any location. The materials are better organized and easier to locate when they need to be addressed, cutting down on the time spent sifting through piles and trying to locate a single misplaced piece of paper.
All the while, your organization is saving money on paper, ink and postage costs. While it may seem nominal, the costs can add up quickly, particularly in a mid-to-large sized organization.
