Research shows that organizations that embrace onboarding solutions significantly outperform those that do not. A best in class onboarding solution like SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding, for example, will yield 2.5 times higher profit growth. In return, this means profit margin and revenue growth per employee is nearly as twice of that competition.
Unlike other onboarding solutions that are merely seen and used as a compliance tool, SAP's approach is to offer a strategic onboarding solution to guide, connect and develop new hires from day one. Let's take a look at how SAP SuccessFactors can help your organization solve some of your onboarding challenges:
The key to successful onboarding is to make the hiring manager the star.
Onboarding often goes awry because hiring managers are tasked with many things and not given the tools to manage a successful onboarding process. Onboarding is one of the most complex HR processes in the company with many players – HR for form completion, benefit setup, payroll, onboarding oversight; Facilities for desk assignment, keycards, parking spots, and badges; IT for computers, phones, security access; Team members for mentorship, familiarity with company dynamics, knowledge transfer, and so much more. So how do we ensure all of this gets done.
There are two aspects – one is automation of many processes – task routing, notifications and reminders take care of much of this, but the second part is much more critical and complex. Hiring managers need to handle getting the right content, people, meetings, and tasks in front of the new hire as soon as possible to set expectations and create a welcoming and successful first day experience. The Hiring Manager experience gives hiring managers a configurable onboarding workflow to ensure nothing gets missed and new hires have the resources and people they need at their finger tips.
Onboarding is so much more than compliance.
With hiring managers able to assign much of what the new hire needs, new hires can start engaging even before day one. Access to learning courses, tasks, goals and resources means new hires can start becoming familiar with what is expected of them in their jobs. With the ability to not only view mentors and peers but communicate with them prior to day one, new hires have a welcoming experience so they know who is who on their first day and what role they will play in their onboarding. Also, with access to critical information, pre-day one, new hires can get answers to the simple questions everyone has: Where do I park? What is my office location? Do I need to bring a lunch? What should I wear on the first day? Providing answers to this means that new hires can focus on their job, learning about the new company or new team and achieving their goals – ultimately getting new hires to productivity faster.
Complete oversight into the onboarding process.
HR professionals have a complete view into onboarding status, form completion rates and times to ensure that the process is effective. As a way to continually improve the onboarding process, HR has a view into the onboarding pipeline to identify bottlenecks, see task completion status, send reminders all to keep things flowing smoothly and quickly.
As you can see above, SAP SuccessFactors' Onboarding solution will not only address the challenges faced by your organization but also will guide, connect and develop your new hires with a welcoming experience.
