Expediting employee onboarding is extremely important for many healthcare organizations right now. Many healthcare facilities are ramping up hiring for departments affected by COVID-19. An HRMS with a new hire onboarding portal is quick, easy, and compliant.

If you are onboarding multiple healthcare new hires at once, an HRMS is a must-have. A Human Resources Management System includes everything you need to manage onsite and offsite employees.

In this article, we will focus on the New Employee Onboarding Portal.

An HRMS includes:

  • Federal and state tax forms
  • Benefits enrollment and plan information
  • Employee handbook
  • Payroll setup
  • E-signature
  • Completion confirmation
  • WOTC application and filing
  • Background and reference checks

Does it take a long time to get new employees up-to-speed?

When you hire a new employee, you want them to start contributing as quickly as possible. In hospitals, clinics, and senior care facilities, it’s never been more important to get employee onboarding right.

Manual onboarding can be a big pain. Structured onboarding with an HRMS improves engagement, retention, and your overall employer brand.

When your new hire accepts your offer letter, your HRMS emails them a link to the New Employee Onboarding Portal.

The portal walks them through all the paperwork. Your administrators can monitor task completion. The new employee can fill out all the paperwork at home before they arrive at work their first day.

Make the first day less stressful

Take away the stress of the first day by telling them in advance where to park and how to clock in. An HRMS onboarding portal can send them a welcome email with all pertinent first-day information.

Ensure their manager or someone on their team greets them at the door. Make sure everyone on their team introduces themselves the first day. Set up their workstation before they show up.

Don’t cram everything into the first day or week. Prioritize establishing a relationship over completing processes.
