Employee onboarding is an important practice for companies of all sizes. But once you grow your start-up of a few employees to a company hiring people regularly, it becomes vital that onboarding is seen as an opportunity to serve all employees.
Companies live and die by customer service standards, but, sadly, “employee service” is often overlooked. It becomes lost in the details of processes, and employee needs are not given the time and dedication they deserve. In short, the process becomes more important than the people.
However, providing exceptional employee service directly affects an entire business, and so supporting excellence in this area should be a desired outcome of all processes. This means that it is imperative to make the employee onboarding process a great experience for everyone involved.
Investing In Humans and Resources
Effective onboarding starts with finding the right applicants. Here at ExactHire, we have all the tools you need to successfully find applicants and screen them appropriately. From our applicant tracking system and employee assessments, to background and reference check services, we can help you find top talent that is the right fit for your organization. But what then?
Once you have found “the one” for your open position, onboarding becomes a crucial component to their future success. Employee onboarding can be the difference between your new employees having an exceptional experience from the start, or quickly questioning their decision to join your team. Have you ever had a new employee arrive on the first day only to find that someone had forgotten to set up system logins or payroll? These things happen because we are all human. So why not position your employees (humans) for success by investing in technology (resources)?
Onboarding Employee Service
Onboarding software streamlines many of the tasks included in the onboarding process, while also keeping everyone on the same page by assigning onboarding tasks to the employees responsible for facilitating the process. This provides a safeguard against unnecessary delays and missed items, as well as a process overview for management that is measureable.
Onboarding software makes the onboarding process seamless and easy to navigate for new hires, the Human Resources department, and everyone involved in the process. So take some of the trouble out of growing your business, and get on track to making sure all of your new and current employees have the service they deserve. The result will be excellence in employee service!
