Automate Onboarding and Retain Your Employees

By Amy Grendus on December 4, 2018

I remember my first… The anticipation had been building for weeks, but when the day finally arrived the experience was clumsy, even awkward.  I couldn’t help but feel a bit disappointed.

Have you likewise had an unsatisfying experience on your first day at a new job?

What’s at Stake?

As much as employees are keen to make a good impression on their first day, in today’s competitive job market, employers need to do the same. Consider: 31% of employees have quit a job after less than six months. On the other hand, 75% of employees who were satisfied with their organizations on boarding reported being loyal to their employer. Employees who were “highly satisfied” with their onboarding experience were three times more likely to feel comfortable after their first day, and two times more likely to still feel comfortable later in their first year.

Not only does it make the experience better for your new employees, but it also makes the process more efficient for your organization. Recruiting and onboarding new employees can be time consuming and labor intensive.  Studies show that hiring a new employee can cost as much as 50-60% of an employee’s annual salary.

With statistics like these, it pays to gain your employee’s loyalty from day one.

What Do You Stand to Gain?

Using powerful business automation tools, paper documents are replaced with digital forms and files, and automated workflows can securely route the information to the appropriate departments and send alerts and reminders where action is required.

Imagine if the hire of a new employee automatically triggered a request for the individual to fill out the required forms electronically, even on their mobile device or tablet.  Upon return of the completed information, your IT department is automatically notified to provision the required hardware and software, customized to their role of the new employee.  The employee’s information is automatically submitted to your human resources and accounting systems and stored securely. The new hire’s orientation and training is automatically scheduled and tracked.  Business cards and swag are automatically ordered and delivered to welcome your new employee. Follow up check ins and reviews are scheduled quarterly to ensure employee satisfaction and job performance.

All of this can be done automatically, for a consistent, quality onboarding experience that contributes to your employees feeling welcome and engaged right from their first day on the job.

What Employee Services Can Be Automated?

  • Recruitment and job postings
  • Onboarding processes
  • Career development and training programs
  • Benefits and insurance enrollment
  • Leave requests
  • Contract renewals
  • Asset provisioning
  • Employee engagement and satisfaction surveys
  • Expense approvals
  • Performance reviews and succession planning

Can I use One Microsoft Flow for Multiple Libraries?

Can I use one Microsoft Flow for multiple libraries? I could Save As, but then I’d have to make updates to each Flow individually. Is there a better way?
