#12DaysofHCM

Ultimate Software’s #12DaysofHCM has returned. Over the next two weeks, we’ll recap some of the most talked about topics from 2016, and preview what’s ahead for 2017. First up: onboarding.  Smooth Sailing from Day One

As research shows, it doesn’t take long for employees to evaluate their employers. A smooth onboarding experience can have a long-term impact. Learn more on the #12DaysofHCM blog series.

Just as we do in our everyday personal lives—from online banking to one-click shopping—we expect fast, convenient experiences every day as employees. What’s more, we expect this convenience from day one. For organizations, that means providing new hires with a smooth onboarding experience that sets the foundation for positive and productive long-term relationships. It starts with trading mounds of paper that can overwhelm new employees for digital forms they can complete with a few simple clicks and a verified e-signature. With the ability to complete all the necessary forms from a preferred mobile device, and even before their first day, new hires can concentrate on connecting with their teams, be productive from the start, and immerse themselves in their new roles right away. The need for fast, convenient onboarding wasn’t a novel concept in 2016, and it won’t disappear in 2017. To remain competitive—and retain top talent—it’s essential for organizations to offer enhanced employee experiences from day one. What will you do in 2017 to wow your new hires?
