AUSTIN, Texas — March 1, 2016 — PeopleAdmin, the leader in talent management software for K-12 and higher education, today announced the launch of Onboard, a comprehensive solution that helps schools and districts welcome, engage and retain new teachers and staff, avoiding costly rehiring as they compete for top talent to fill open positions.
Designed for PeopleAdmin’s TalentEd and SearchSoft platforms, Onboard is an employee onboarding process management solution that fully integrates with Recruit & Hire and SearchSoft applicant tracking systems through single sign-on capabilities.
“We believe that a positive K-12 onboarding experience can make a considerable difference in a school’s — or an entire district’s — ability to attract and retain new employees and decrease the cost of recruitment,” said PeopleAdmin CEO Kermit S. Randa. “Onboard really sets the foundation for a well-engaged employee, who can champion the school’s mission right from the start and throughout their tenure.”
A comprehensive onboarding automation tool designed for K-12 education, Onboard makes it easier for human resources administrators and school leaders to maintain visibility and improve efficiency in the onboarding process while ensuring positive first impressions for new hires.
As competition for top educators increases and teacher turnover and staff shortages continue, a successful onboarding program can dramatically increase new employee productivity and improve engagement, job satisfaction, retention — and even the reputation of the district or school among future job seekers.
“PeopleAdmin’s onboarding tools have given us a lot more time to focus on the human element,” said Gabriel Park, Chief Financial Officer at Equality Charter School. “I’m free to spend additional time thinking about creative ways to engage with new employees in person instead of what is often an impersonal process. Automating the checklist tasks has allowed us to focus on opportunities to provide new employees with a higher touch welcome experience.”
By using Onboard, administrators can focus on compliance while decreasing the stress of new hire paperwork for office staff and for new employees, reducing the risk of errors.
