One of the most effective and consistent ways to onboard employees and other new starters into the workplace is to setup an onboarding portal. An organisation specific onboarding portal allows you to issue a link to your new starters for them to access, self register and complete the onboarding process and steps before they start working in your organisation. They might do this immediately after being offered the job as their first introduction to your workplace.
Below we go over three steps for designing and creating an onboarding portal online:
The first step is to choose your portal name. This is basically a URL extension and you will get: OnlineOnboarding.com/yourextension
Typically you would choose your organisations name
This is an easy to remember name to issue as a link to anyone you need to onboard to your organisation
The next step is to start preparing and configuring your onboarding steps. How many steps are part of your onboarding process?
Do you want to collect anything from your new starters as part of them joining your organisation? Online forms for them to complete? Do you need to collect licenses or certifications? Evidence of Training? You can setup automatic reminders for them these items expire as well.
What sort of content do you need to have your new starters / employee's go through? Is there a safety orientation? any HR policies and procedures to acknowledge?
What about any check lists and document libraries to acknowledge online before they start work?
Finally, do you need to test their competency through an assessment to make sure they understand everything?
Ensure all new staff are issued a certificate of completion if they have completed the onboarding process online
