Onboarding compliance – are you on board?
Reduced employer risk
Ensuring your onboarding program meets compliance can reduce employer and management risk considerably. It’s the time to communicate company protocols, verify working rights and initiate safety inductions and training to meet WH&S obligations.
But keeping HR compliant comes with its challenges. For example, your employer responsibilities around hiring an independent contractor differ greatly to those for a full-time employee.
Great technology can be your voice of authority. Expedo steps you through defining your new employee correctly and dynamically creates a tailored contract. Policy documents and contract templates are also maintained regularly by our own employment experts in-country, keeping you compliant following legislation changes.
Studies show that a well-planned onboarding program can increase productivity by more than 50%. Entering a new workplace not knowing what to do or who to communicate with can present unnecessary obstacles, limiting progress and productivity for new hires. So the more information you communicate during an employee’s initial onboarding, the more comfortable and prepared they’ll be.
Improved staff retention
Unhappy employees are unlikely to stay with an organisation for long. A well-considered onboarding program can improve engagement, immersing employees into your company culture and familiarising them with essential business protocols and procedures.
Setting a positive expectation before day one also heightens employee morale by increasing their role and responsibility awareness. Use it to communicate opportunities for growth and development within your organisation.
