Your business is growing rapidly. Your increasing rate of bringing new employees and contractors on board is straining your resources and timelines. You need an onboarding process that is efficient, modern and provides a positive experience for your new employees. 


You will be able to manage all employee information from one central repository.  It can integrate with your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS).  With the click of a button, it will deliver the ‘new hire’ information packets via an online portal where new hires can self-serve, completing the required forms and uploading the required documentation.

Ensuring that all of your employees have read important policies and procedures, and signed an acknowledgement is challenging. If you rely on manual processes, it’s cumbersome and risky.  You are rarely certain that all employees have completed this and even less sure about which employee files are incomplete.


You will be able to manage employee notification of new policies and procedures that require their acknowledgment using an online portal. Employees will be able to self-serve by signing into the portal, reviewing new information and signing their acknowledgement at a time that is convenient for them, from wherever they are located.

Documenting employee complaints, grievances, safety violations and misconduct, is often unstructured and inconsistent. This leads to employee discontent and increases financial risk when issues are escalated to litigation.  It’s also challenging, if not impossible, to provide Senior Management with an accurate picture.  


Dashboards allow you to view the issues by type, department, employee, etc. and provide visibility into the status of cases to monitor progress, track resolution times and resolve bottlenecks. This also allows you to identify trends to report to Senior Management, or Legal, as needed. You’ll also have an auditable trail of actions and dates, with the names of those involved, and documentation of the policies and procedures that were followed.
