Onboarding, Digital Adoption, Change Management. These are not only buzzwords, but a way of handling business automation processes within organizations. Onboarding employees is more than filling out HR paperwork, setting up payroll and getting user-ids for company applications.
If the company uses complex software, then onboarding employees from a technical standpoint needs to be handled with a planned approach. If the approach is off, whether it be a new hire or existing department, then the digital adoption process could be compromised.
Before we do a deeper dive into onboarding, one must understand what this means and why it’s important.
What exactly is Onboarding from a technical standpoint and how can companies ensure its success?
User Onboarding for software applications, simplified, is the process by which a new or existing hire adopts/learns software. This is crucial to employee success as it measures how quickly they are able to grasp the features and benefits an application.
Employees may be in a role where using Salesforce, for example, not only impacts the revenue of a department, but also directly impact's the employee compensation. The value proposition for human resource departments would be to ensure employees are not only successful in the onboarding process, but also the company itself.
