In today’s fast-paced business environment, efficient and effective onboarding of frontline employees is crucial. However, traditional methods often fall short, with a Gallup survey revealing that only 12% of employees strongly agree their organization does a great job of onboarding new employees. To address this issue, organizations need a solution that is not only efficient but also engaging and easy to use.Ā 

In this article, we will introduce you to hrPad. This tablet/iPad-based talent acquisition solution seamlessly integrates with UKG. This AI-powered tool revolutionizes the onboarding process, making it more engaging, efficient, and effective. Stay tuned to learn how hrPad can transform your frontline onboarding process.

Challenges in Frontline Onboarding

Decentralized Recruitment Process

One of the primary challenges in frontline onboarding is the decentralized nature of the recruitment process. Frontline talent is typically located in different work locations, making the recruitment process scattered and uncoordinated. This decentralization leads to inefficiencies in the onboarding process, as the document collection process is also decentralized, while verifications and onboarding remain centralized. This results in multiple handshakes on documents before they reach the right person, leading to errors, non-compliance, and delays in onboarding.

High Drop-off Rates

Another significant challenge is the high drop-off rate of selected candidates. It is estimated that up to 30% of selected candidates drop off post getting selected due to onboarding challenges and delays. This high drop-off rate not only affects the company’s productivity but also increases the cost of recruitment and onboarding.

Compliance Issues

Compliance is another major challenge in frontline onboarding. Each employer has unique requirements, and staffing companies must ensure 100% compliance from day one. This can be particularly challenging when dealing with hundreds of clients and thousands of sites where employees are recruited, hired, and deployed.

Lack of Efficient Digital Tools

More than 40% of companies are concerned that frontline workers lack digital tools that support effective communication and engagement. This lack of efficient digital tools can lead to communication gaps, resulting in errors and delays in the onboarding process.

Overcoming the Challenges with AI

CloudApper’s hrPad is a tablet-based AI talent acquisition solution specifically designed for frontline employees. This innovative tool, which seamlessly integrates with UKG, is revolutionizing the onboarding process by making it more efficient, engaging, and user-friendly.

Centralized Self-Service Platform

The hrPad serves as a centralized self-service platform where frontline employees can easily access a wealth of information about the company.

The AI Assistant feature ensures that all this information is readily answered in a natural language format, making the onboarding process smoother and more efficient.

Employee Engagement Platform

One of the key features of hrPad is its Employee Self-Service functionality. This feature empowers employees by allowing them to view their schedules, request time off, and access their timecards. This is facilitated by a user-friendly AI-powered solution that verifies employee identities securely using face ID, QR codes, barcodes, or NFC. The platform also allows employees to bid on preferred shifts, giving them more control over their work schedules.

Compliance Management Platform

hrPad allows you to capture essential data such as job changes, pay codes, and employee tips. This ensures compliance with employment regulations and provides a more accurate and comprehensive view of your workforce. The platform also integrates seamlessly with your existing workflows and HR processes, making it a versatile solution for managing compliance.
