Go Paperless with Onboarding

Eliminate all of the paper forms, postage and copies with SilkRoad Onboarding electronic form capabilities, reducing costs for their organisation. Instead of days and days of orientation, new hires receive just the right information. They click through, accept, validate. So simple. No copying, shipping or scanning.

Detailed Dashboards
Monitor employee progress at a glance, issue timely reports, and ensure compliance.
Consistent Processes
From the moment an applicant says, “yes,” SilkRoad Onboarding automates the workflow processes and new hire form delivery.
Task Management with Smart Logic
SilkRoad Onboarding workflows use smart logic (Categories) that delivers a unique experience to every user, increasing participation with your organisation and time to productivity.
Electronic Forms
Quick entry with pre-population and electronic signatures, reducing costs associated with the paper trial of employee forms.

Improve Employee Retention

Early engagement with your organisation’s culture and brand value improves new employee retention, minimises first-day no-shows, and early employee turnover – those “quick quits” that stall corporate momentum.

Automate and manage all employee career events to further drive engagement throughout the employee’s career and reduce risk around events such as offboarding, transfers, promotions, department moves, acquisitions, and other actions to ensure that all parties accomplish all steps in the process.

Advanced Onboarding Features

Integrate new hires faster with easy-to-use, easy-to-manage new employee forms, electronic signatures, colour-coded task dashboards, and auto-populated fields.

Maximise Compliance, Decrease Risk

We care about your compliance success, so SilkRoad ensures that compliance tools are up-to-date with the latest legislation requirements.

I-9 Forms
A certified U.S. Department of Homeland Security Employer Agent, SilkRoad Onboarding employee onboarding software gives you complete electronic
I-9 functionality. Generate Form I-9 electronically, ensure that it is completed on time and then archive it.
E-Verify Process Integration
SilkRoad provides a seamless end-to-end I-9 E-Verify process directly from SilkRoad Onboarding, reducing error and compliance risk. Unlike other systems, you won’t need to contract with a 3rd party to provide this service. Our direct integration lowers costs, ensures a consistent process and makes it easier to stay compliant while avoiding E-Verify duplicates.
Additional Auditing
You’ll also have additional audit capabilities to monitor administrative actions throughout the onboarding process, so you can maintain confidence even as regulations continue to change.

Boost Onboarding Efficiency

Automated workflows and dashboards for HR staff can drastically improve productivity as much as 30%. You’re not pushing paper anymore; you’re managing and organising.

Easy Employee Downloads
It’s easy to download all employee-specific documents from SilkRoad Onboarding. Select documents associated with a specific employee for download to a zip file.
Associate Attribute to Uploaded Documents
It’s easy to identify document types, when viewing uploaded documents for an employee profile by user-defined attributes. These attributes make it simple for document management systems to consume and organise the documents.

Do More than Onboarding

Most employee career events require that a consistent process, workflow and forms be completed. SilkRoad can be adapted easily to handle employee offboarding, corporate location moves, mergers and acquisitions, employee relocations (expat situations), or channel partner and customer onboarding.

Trackable and Reportable
For example, a SilkRoad customer uses SilkRoad Onboarding to bring on board new employees during an acquisition, where acquired talent needs to understand the new company culture and experience. Another customer used SilkRoad Onboarding to support a corporate move to a new facility to ensure a disparate multi-shift workforce had consistent information about the new location. Another SilkRoad customer uses Onboarding to onboard its channel partners to ensure they have completed the tasks associated with certification. All trackable and reportable.

Leverage the SilkRoad Talent App Exchange

The SilkRoad Onboarding solution offers robust web services and bulk user integrations to/from your existing HR application, such as Recruiting, HRMS, IT provisioning, and Background screening. You can also choose to integrate with SilkRoad Talent Apps.
