On Boarding Done Smart!

welcome aboardAn HR Trend for 2014 is the increased use of technology such as virtual on boarding.

When I worked in Human Resources for Mellon Bank in the 1980s, one of my responsibilities was to conduct the new employee orientation program. This was a full day program in which new hires filled out paperwork (at varying levels of speed), watched a video about the company (which I sat through many, many times), and listened to presentations (which may or may not pertain to their job).

Today, HR professionals can on board new hires more efficiently. With virtual on boarding: 1) you choose what paperwork you need each person to complete and they take whatever time they need without holding up anyone else; 2) you choose what training you need them to take so that they are best prepared for their job; and 3) you choose what policies they need to sign off on. Of course, you can provide general information about the company and corporate culture to all new employees.

By selecting an on boarding program that meets the needs of the individual, HR saves time, and new employees get up to speed more quickly. The faster new employees can become productive contributors, the better for everyone.

Start with our master training program. Edit, add, or rearrange content. Upload your company logo, videos, images, or files. Instantly create your own powerful day one training and on boarding program. Simple.

  • Web-based and secure
  • Easy to use, easy to set up
  • Streamlines payroll and benefit paperwork
  • Documents sign off on company policies & guidelines
  • Clarifies expectations of performance & behavior

If you want to learn more about this exciting and affordable new way of on boarding your new hires, let me know and we will arrange a free, fifteen minute demonstration to show you what you have been missing!

Why Start Up Companies Need HR

lens17846193_1302712502HRWhile many entrepreneurs may not think about contracting HR help from day one, doing so is essential for any start up organization. Regarding HR, you don’t know what you don’t know and, unfortunately, in our experience, HR often gets called after a problem develops. Here are a few reasons why it pays to be proactive:

  • Employee lawsuits have risen 400 percent in the last 20 years
  • During the past five years, 6 out of 10 employers have faced an employee lawsuit
  • 41.5% of employee lawsuits are with private employers with 15 to 100 employees
  • Defending an employment lawsuit costs $75,000 to $250,000

A good HR person is worth his or her weight in gold. In addition to protecting your organization from employee lawsuits, having a dedicated HR professional’s help at the outset will ensure that you:

  • Have accurate job descriptions and a legally compliant employee handbook
  • Develop a compensation and benefits strategy
  • Recruit talented employees
  • Efficiently onboard new employees and report new hires
  • Set up and maintain employee files and payroll
  • Get expert advice on employee relations issues
  • Implement a performance appraisal system
  • Provide required employee training
  • Conduct employee surveys

All of these HR functions help your organization comply with the law, attract and retain talent, and allow you to focus on building your business.

The Lindenberger Group has helped many start up companies with their HR needs. We provide highly competent, experienced assistance at affordable rates.

If you are thinking about starting a business, or have started your own company, call us at 609 730 1049 to let us know how we can help you.
