Employee Onboarding Automation
Employees of a company are the main essence and more than a number of steps are met with while hiring and onboarding them. Onboarding process refers to the mechanism through which a new employee goes through certain official procedures and acquires the necessary skills and knowledge to be an influential and effective part of the organisation.
The main crucial step of onboarding is the filling up of multiple forms by an employee on the very first day of joining. From filling up ID details to bank account info, an employee has to go through repetitive processes of filling up multiple forms. This process makes the employees lethargic and sinks them into boredom as it stretches the time duration. With the number of copies of forms used can lead to paper wastage and consumers HR employee productivity for useless works of data entry. This step of onboarding is cumbersome as an employee has to switch between cubicles looking for the concerned delegates either for enquiry or for authorised signatures. The first day of joining can be chaotic and in confusion for a newly hired employee while dealing with this particular onboarding procedure. Failure to organize the onboarding process can mean disaster both for the company and the employees.

To overcome these challenges and to provide a smooth employee onboarding process, we at Kafal Software have humanized the entire process by creating the solution called Employee Onboarding Automation (EOA). This solution automates end-to-end onboarding in HR department while automating the integration of the corresponding business applications.

Several forms with all the filled details of the employee will be circulated to the concerned employee on the first day of joining. With only a few blanks of legal requirements and signatures for the employee to verify and fill in the forms, the process of employment onboarding is done in minimum 5 minutes while it takes not less than 2-3 hours in the previous procedure without EOA. It not only saves employee efforts but also saves the HR department allowing them to focus on other activities.
