Without a proper process, the hiring of new employees and onboarding of new contractors can introduce errors and inefficiencies that result in lost production, negative customer experiences and a variety of opportunities lost. Worse, when onboarding processes are bungled, the organization’s data, customers, and finances are at risk.
It’s important to prevent mistakes and oversight by adopting and maintaining a formal process for both onboarding and offboarding users, whether those users are part-time non-exempt staff, full-time salaried employees, or contractors.
Businesses should consider adopting an onboarding/offboarding checklist, like the one from TechRepublic Premium. that’s shared with the human resources department to ensure that important hiring and termination steps aren’t accidentally overlooked.
