Once you’ve hired someone with the help of your HR team, you’ll need to make sure the basics of onboarding are covered as well. Luckily this is something that a HR can help with as well.
A full and thorough onboarding process can take up to 12 months, but it an essential part of your business process that encompasses areas such as:
● Issuing of formal contracts
Legally every employee is required to have written documentation that outlines the key terms of their employment such as pay and working hours. This is required to be in place within two months of the start date.
Contracts should also outline areas such as holiday allowance, pensions and other areas that have statutory minimums. As contracts are legally binding it’s essential that these are handled correctly, and an expert in HR may be needed to do so.
● Managing legally required admin and paperwork
Contracts aren’t the only form of paperwork needed when you’re bringing a new employee in. Other bits of paperwork are needed as well, and HR are primed to help handle this. This not only makes the onboarding experience smoother for the business and new employees, but it allows everyone to focus on their actual job rather than legal necessities that don’t impact directly on the new hires job performance.
