Oracle Onboarding, a key component of Oracle’s comprehensive Human Capital Management (HCM) suite, revolutionizes how organizations find, integrate, and retain top talent.
Recognizing that the onboarding process is critical for fostering employee engagement and accelerating time-to-productivity, Oracle Onboarding offers a robust set of tools and features. From automating administrative tasks to creating personalized onboarding experiences, Oracle’s Onboarding solution is designed to streamline and enhance the onboarding journey and improve social collaboration.
In this article, we explore the key features and advantages of Oracle Onboarding, how it contributes to a positive and impactful new hire experience, and the main ways our expert Oracle consultants can help.
Orientation vs. Onboarding Tasks
Employee orientation is a standard process that typically involves ensuring all new hires know their start dates and times, reviewing basic HR policies and requirements, assigning teams or workstations, and completing necessary paperwork to verify employment. Orientation tasks occur on a short-term basis and only address the information, policies, and activities necessary for new hires to understand what they are meant to be doing.
Onboarding, on the other hand, involves a more extensive process that enables new hires to fully understand how the company works and their role in the organization’s culture and success. Effective onboarding tasks focus on building relationships and facilitating stronger employee retention rates by listening to new employees, understanding their concerns, and making their voices heard from Day One.
