Onboarding during the pandemic

Date: 30th Sep 2020

The labour market is tough at the moment, however a number of key sectors continue to appoint new staff. But how are they welcoming new starters into the business when a face-to-face induction is not always possible?  

Starting a new job can be nerve-wracking at the best of times, but when it's not possible to meet colleagues or even see your place of work, the reassurance we might usually receive from detailed inductions can be lost.

Take the cleaning sector, never more important in these unusual times. Many commercial cleaning companies are experiencing an upturn in business as organisations demand more frequent cleaning.

One of the easiest ways to prevent coronavirus is to ensure that surfaces – and your hands – are cleaned regularly.

Many businesses are enhancing their cleaning regimes and even hiring more cleaners as part of their reopening from lockdown.

As a result CV-Library has advertised 1,571 cleaning positions in the past three months.

EziOnboard is a field-based onboarding tool empowering recruiters to capture employee centric data for recruitment. Working closely with our clients over the years we have recognised a time lag from onsite recruitment to head office processing and acknowledgement of a new starter

This time lag often meant employees unlawfully working without employee contracts or having been provided with the correct training/induction documentation or appropriate company liability insurance cover. This frequently led to breakdown or failure to deliver the contracted service and the poor communication between new starter and company increased attrition rates.

EziOnboard captures and notifies key departments of a new starter which is imperative in a fast-paced market where recruitment takes place remotely.

Personnel details, Next of Kin, Right to work, Proof of identity and address, photographic evidence, Notifications to departments for security checks, contracts of employment and much more…… are driven from EziOnboard.
