Hot Onboarding Tips - In the Age of Mobile

May 30, 2019 11:51:39 AM

A recent study by the Pew Research Center shows that overall, 84% of U.S. households own a computer (including at least a desktop, laptop, netbook or notebook computer; handheld computers including smartphones; devices such as tablets). Approximately ⅓ of those citizens mostly use their mobile device to connect rather than a wired computer; 77% of Americans own a smartphone which is a major increase from Pew Research Center’s study in 2011 of 35%.

The smartphone, or other mobile devices, are quickly moving to overtake the home computer in terms of usage, and it’s easy to see why: they are easier to use, easier to carry, and deliver substantial power compared to earlier models of smartphone. It’s convenience in the palm of your hand. It’s only natural that instead of fighting this change, companies learn to embrace the technology.

When looking for the best-of-the-best applicants to fill positions at your company, being tech/mobile savvy is massive for the current workforce generation. While you appeal to those potential employees, why not also make your life easier?

Our onboarding software’s New Hire Portal is mobile friendly, letting your new hires get to work on their first day rather than waste it filling out paperwork.

We all know how tedious and time-consuming new hire paperwork is. W-2s, W-4s, I-9s, direct deposit, employee handbooks will take up at least the first day of a new hire, if not more. Instead of getting everything done on an employee’s first day, you can save everyone’s time by getting the required forms to your new hire days before they start, digitally, and better yet, accessible on their mobile devices.

Even on mobile our system will keep new hires compliant as they fill out IRS forms, and autofill redundant sections to reduce errors and eliminate frustration on the employee’s side. Providing this mobile accessibility to your new employees not only encourages them to get this work done before starting their new job, but also gives them reason to provide faith in your company and your investment in their work.

A “small” gesture like mobile accessibility can go a long way in attracting top talent.


Check out onboarding suite of #PeopleTools and schedule a demo and let us show you that accessibility is just the start when it comes to pleasing new, and old, employees.
