Shirley Garcia remembers that the manual recruiting and onboarding process they used to have in the company consumed too much time and made it difficult to meet their client needs. Their paper-based process was ineffective in managing their recruiting process and did not provide the visibility into their applicant pipeline. After using HR Cloud, their new onboarding process is now easy and effective where newly hired associates follow an intuitive workflow complete with designated actions and responsibilities. The solution includes onboarding, offboarding, project staff communications, and recruiting that allowed her team to have the right statistics of the applicant pool and provide these details to clients easily.
Kaylee Collins, an HR analyst with a utilities services company, recalled the challenge of their HR to onboard a high number of field-based employees. The process took an average of two hours for each new hire, accompanied by data entry errors that took more time to fix, and concerns on compliance to meet deadlines and security requirements. The HR Cloud solution automated the entire onboarding approach that resulted in time savings, increased data accuracy, and ensured compliance with industry regulations. Kaylee’s team can also now monitor the process and assist if needed. The HR software’s implementation team made great effort to work with the client, vendors, and third-parties to give the users an interface they liked to use.
