Posted bycitrus HR

Nowadays, onboarding of new staff is an important task for lots of small businesses. It can really set the tone for the culture that you want to create in your business.

As hiring remotely continues, small business owners are revolutionising their digital onboarding experiences to make the process easier, more efficient, and as stress-free as possible.

Here at citrus HR, we love helping our customers, and we’ve incorporated our very own onboarding tool as part of our HR software. It’s a simple way to help small businesses like yours integrate their new staff, get them off on the right foot with the culture of your company and make that new employee’s first day awesome.

In this blog, we’ll walk you through the features that our onboarding tool has to offer, how it works, and how it can simplify your onboarding process.


What is citrus HR’s software onboarding tool?

citrus HR’s onboarding tool is a simple and efficient feature in our HR software that has been designed to make processing recruitment and new starters easier for small businesses.

The tool helps you to provide a streamlined onboarding experience, so that you and your new starters can be excited from day one.


How can our onboarding feature help you?

1. In-built quality saves you time

Here at citrus HR, we have one end goal in mind; to help small businesses save valuable time with their HR admin tasks so that they can focus on their customers.

Using our software, you won’t have to worry about constructing those important documents such as offer letters anymore, as our onboarding tool has them built-in and ready to go. In a few simple clicks, both you and your new employee will have everything available to make the transition easy.


2. Reassurance that you’re getting the right information

Our tool has been carefully designed by HR specialists with expert knowledge. They know exactly what information you will need from your new starter, as well as what you need to be giving to them.

Once the offer letter is signed and returned, you can provide a link to the new employee asking them to provide key information to get them set-up. This includes address details, any allergies to be aware of and those all-important bank details so you can set them up with payroll. You can even store the P65 when they start.

With our onboarding tool, everything will be taken care of, so you can relax and know that you have all the relevant information in one convenient place.


3. All staff catered for

Whether you employ part-time, flexible or full-time employees, or a mixture of them all, our software can help.  We’ve incorporated features like pro-rata holiday calculations and customisable checklists, so you can focus less on formalities and more on creating a better culture so your business can thrive.

The checklists are a great way to make sure your new starter gets everything they need to get them off to a flying start and helps you to ensure any legal bits are covered. You can include things such as; right to work check, order phone lines/set-up email, invite to company meetings and invite to the pension scheme.


4. Reading lists

When your new starters join your team, you need them to be able to get hold of information quickly and easily about your company policies and procedures that might affect their work.  You also need to know that they have read and understood this information.  This is where our ‘Reading List’ feature can help.  You can specify any documents that need to be read alongside their induction training.

You’ll also be able to see when they have confirmed they’ve read those documents and see what is yet to be completed. Luckily, you can rely on citrus HR to save you time and effort, by making this software process simple, yet robust, so you can focus on other HR tasks.


5. Probation support

Those first few weeks for new starters are so important, our onboarding features have everything you need to help manage the probation period. The tool will automatically remind you of the probation end date, you can schedule review points to help your small business have confidence that your new starter will be well supported, helping them to settle in and learn everything you’d expect them to.
