How do I onboard a new employee via the HR platform

Overview

Enhance your new employees' onboarding experience with Employment Hero's paperless onboarding process. The Employee Onboarding widget on your dashboard allows you to specify pay and allowance details, track your employees' progress through the onboarding process, and send reminders if necessary. Your employee is then taken through just a few simple steps before onboarding is complete. 

Helpful Hint

To read further details on the employee onboarding workflow, and how your employees progress through it, refer to the following guide.

View employee onboarding progress

Once you have onboarded an employee, the platform will display their progress within the Employee Onboarding widget. The progress bar has seven steps; they are:

  1. Basic information.

    Important

    An administrator would complete these first three steps when they onboard an employee through the dashboard widget.

  4. Employer's signature.

    This is the signatory nominated to sign the contract.

  5. Employee contract signature.
  6. Personal details.
  7. Certifications.

    This option only appears if you have enabled certifications to show during the Employee Onboarding workflow. To read further details on how to enable this feature, refer to the following article.
