The hiring process can seem overwhelming for those in an industry with high turnover. Those in the restaurant and retail businesses are particularly familiar with high attrition rates. So, if you’re an HR manager and fall into one of these business sectors, you’ve most likely started your journey to automate your hiring process.
Here are four critical steps to follow when implementing an automated hiring solution.
Automate Your Hiring Process with an Online Applicant Tracking System
If you want to take the inexpensive route to reduce paper and incomplete applications, consider choosing a paperless software solution. With the right web-based solution, your new candidates will be able to complete the application online designed for hourly candidates – from their mobile device. HR will receive your candidate’s demographics, previous job information, and education history in a user-friendly format. Since the data collected will be very similar to what’s needed for drug and background testing, an easy interface could be setup between third party vendors to automate these processes as well.
Convert Your Applicants into New Hires with an Integrated Solution
Once you finalize the decision to bring a new employee onboard, be certain that your applicant data seamlessly flows into your new hire onboarding solution. Furthermore, HR software vendors should provide a fully integrated service that allows candidates to enter their demographics only once. Data entered during the applicant session should flow into the onboarding software without the need for duplicate entry.
Select a Paperless Onboarding Solution
Any onboarding vendor worth its salt, will provide a completely paperless solution for all of the new hire forms. Policy forms, I-9 forms, W-4’s, direct deposit, and other new hire forms should be readily available in a standard onboarding package. Once the employee has completed the data, an option to print the forms or download the data should be provided.
Push Your New Hires into Payroll Seamlessly and Eliminate Data Entry
Having payroll associates enter new employee data can be very costly and inefficient. An onboarding solution will integrate your new employee data into your payroll system. A simple file-based delivery or API can shave many hours of time away from costly data entry. This system allows your payroll staff to focus on core objectives.
