What can a retailer get out of an electronic onboarding system? Or a casual dining chain?
How about cutting onboarding time from 4 hours per new hire to a half an hour? How about improving WOTC screening compliance from 16% to 99%?
Those are the kinds of results youth clothing retailer Pacific Sunwear got. Debra Parent, Senior Manager of HR Operations at PacSun talked about this and the onboarding compliance impact at a recent webinar.
Debra and co-speaker Steve Sands, Senior Human Resources Manager at Hardee’s Food Systems (part of CKE) had a lively exchange about electronic onboarding and compliance at the webinar. Their discussion included I-9 compliance issues, the special challenges of a young workforce, remote locations, and the financial impact of making WOTC screening a routine part of your electronic onboarding process.
In fact, Steve told attendees that Hardee’s paid for the onboarding system with the increased financial impact of WOTC screening. The onboarding process implemented at Hardee’s also helped reduce I-9 errors and improve general onboarding compliance.
