Having an easy to use and easily accessible onboarding system, you will be able to streamline the document management process, manage forms, assign due dates for tasks and courses, send reminders and report with various organisational metrics. This will form part of your overall Employee Onboarding.

You might include an onboarding checklist or have a wider onboarding program that all new employees go through before they start their first day on the job.
