What is onboarding software?
Onboarding software is HR management software designed to better engage new hires before they start and streamline the HR administrative tasks associated with bringing a new employee into the company by automating the flow of data and activities. They help businesses deliver an engaging experience that promotes the organisation culture, builds trust and fosters commitment.
Either available as an integrated onboarding module for an HR software system or as a stand-alone application, the best onboarding software saves time, ensures important activities don’t get overlooked, and connects new employees with their new employers and colleagues in a positive and lasting way.
Badly managed new joiner processes leave new staff feeling disengaged and dissatisfied, which represents a huge cost to the business. Successfully onboarding new joiners has been shown to strengthen relationships between employees and their employers, improve staff retention and boost productivity and collaboration.
Onboarding systems also dramatically reduce HR administration overheads and help improve compliance by automating many labour-intensive processes, saving time and helping to ensure key activities don’t get overlooked. These can range from distributing and tracking essential paperwork to notifying others, such as IT, facilities managers or finance departments of activities that need to be completed before – and after – a new employee starts.
We finally have an interactive on-boarding process, also a central location for all personal information to be stored which is quite important with GDPR.
The flexibility within this module means we’re able to provide different portals for different customers, and it presents a very professional first impression.

Making the case for software
Employee onboarding software lets HR teams take control over a process that far too often doesn’t deliver the outcome that either the business or the new joiner anticipates. And, with the cost of modern integrated Cloud HRIS starting from just a few pounds per employee per month, sophisticated onboarding software is available to organisations of every size.
Onboarding is just one of many areas where HR software can help streamline and improve people management. By taking advantage of modern Cloud solutions to automate other key human resources management processes, such as absence and holiday management, performance reviews, recruitment and timesheets, HR teams can free up time and help the whole business work smarter.
