Automated onboarding workflow FAQs

  • What is an onboarding workflow?

    Employers use an onboarding workflow to create a checklist of tasks that a new hire needs to complete when starting a new job. Most of the time, employees can see their list of to-dos in a secure portal, which allows them to keep track of what they have completed and what is still due.

  • What tasks do most onboarding workflows include?

    An onboarding workflow typically includes the steps an employee needs to complete when starting a new role. For example, some companies use workflows to invite new hires to orientation, have team members fill out forms like an I-9 or W-4, or get them to sign the employee handbook. Most make it simple for employees to see a summary of the onboarding steps they have completed and those that are still outstanding.

  • Are employees able to complete steps in the onboarding workflow on their own?

    Yes! Employees can securely log into their account to complete tasks that have been assigned in the onboarding workflow, such as e-signing HR documents, setting up direct deposit, and any other items they need to complete so they can hit the ground running.
