Your HR Digital Transformation Starts Here

Posted by Mathew French on 29 January 2019

In an environment where it is virtually impossible to get consensus on anything, I think it is fair to say that people on all sides of the equation can unite on this: no one likes to fill in or process forms. Not only that, another truism that you could add to the certainty of death and taxes is the fact that there is no getting around the high number of forms new employees have to complete when they commence employment. From employment requisition and authorisation to hire, through to requirements like tax and super declarations, Onboarding new employees requires A LOT of forms. If you're still using paper to record and process this type of information, then you're still victim to manual double (or more) handling. This is an extremely inefficient way to operate in today's business environment, not to mention an expensive one. If you're ready for change, but you're not quite sure where to begin your digital transformation, digitising your forms is an easy place to start. It also gives you big wins, quickly, with minimal impact on your budget.

The Not For Profit People Conference

Posted by Mathew French on 6 November 2018

Every year, EthicalJobs hosts the Not For Profit People Conference in its home town of Melbourne; the biggest event of its kind in Australia. The conference provides an opportunity for NFPs, social enterprise and local councils to explore best practice in attracting, managing, training and retaining people in these sectors. The EthicalJobs platform was created almost ten years ago to promote businesses and jobs that contribute to a more equitable, more just or more sustainable world. With the rise of public awareness about the ethics (or lack thereof) in certain market segments, a shift to more purpose and values driven economic choices is underway. Every year, more businesses are transitioning to (or being started with) the mission of creating a more equitable, just and sustainable future. We've witnessed an increase in these types of businesses here at Subscribe-HR. In fact, an increasing proportion of our customers operate in the NFP, social enterprise or local council segments, and we recognise the importance of supporting these businesses. That's why we've signed on to support the Not For Profit People Conference this year.

Storytelling And Onboarding: The Recipe For A Happy Marriage

Posted by Mathew French on 31 May 2018

If you've heard any of the news about the Financial Services Royal Commission, it is pretty clear that these businesses don't do a very good job of conveying and embedding mission-critical concepts (like ethical behaviour) into their organisation. Communicating the values of your business, and illustrating the culture of your organisation to both potential and actual employees is one thing. Ensuring that those values aren't just paid lip service, but become lived experiences at ALL levels within your organisation, is definitely business-critical in today's marketplace. If the interrogations and admissions of the Royal Commission are anything to go by, it is clear that there is such a wide gap between words and actions in business that something needs to be done. But what? Our last couple of Blog posts have focused on the importance of getting Onboarding right, and the untapped benefits of storytelling for HR. In this Blog, we will explore how you can use the power of story as part of your Onboarding process to set the right tone for the expectations your business has about 'how we do things around here.'

Research Based Evidence For Best Practice Employee Onboarding

Posted by Mathew French on 10 May 2018

One of the great things about providing a service for so many organisations (and the employees of those organisations) is that we get to hear first-hand feedback about what HR Professionals and the teams they serve want and need to make work better. What has become abundantly clear, and increasingly critical in the world of work, is the importance of the onboarding process in setting up new or transferring employees to understand, enjoy and succeed in their new role. We recently proposed that 'how you do onboarding is how you do everything,' and that got us thinking... What would be the best way for us to walk our talk, to put our money where our mouth is and to really make a difference in the world of work? The answer is that we have created a fantastic new Employee Onboarding Software Solution and made it FREE (for a limited time). That means that it is easier than ever for HR Professionals and the organisations they serve to harness the power of Digital HR to transform onboarding from good to great. If you're still not convinced that the onboarding process is probably THE most important aspect of the employee lifecycle, let's dive a little deeper.

How Your Business Does Employee Onboarding Is How It Does Everything

Posted by Mathew French on 12 December 2017

It's that time of year, when everyone is thinking about new beginnings. The impending new year offers an opportunity to hit reset, course correct or take a completely new direction. Starting a new job is a significant new beginning and for new starters, how your business does Onboarding is a reflection of how you do everything. Research indicates that approximately 22 percent of employee turnover takes place during the first 45 days of employment at an average cost of replacement between 16 and 20% of that employee’s salary. That is a significant productivity and dollar cost in and of itself, not to mention the disruption it causes to the rest of your employees and the drain it places on your HR team. So can your organisation onboard new employees in a manner that inspires them to stay with you long-term and become productive, cohesive, integral members of the team as soon as possible?

HR Software Case Study: Cloud HR Software Success Story

Posted by Mathew French on 9 May 2017

Business is changing, and your HR and recruitment should be at the forefront of this change. If your business is still reliant on paper-based systems, and many man-hours of administration, then you have a lot of options for improvement. But despite what your gut might tell you, change can be both quick and painless. Take Premier Technologies for example. An Australian owned and operated Cloud IT Contact Centre Provider, they would be classed as a medium sized business with 60 full-time employees. Premier Technologies wanted their HR, Processes and Systems updated, and Subscribe-HR's People Management Cloud Software was used to do this. From Talent sourcing to Employee Onboarding and Payroll integration.
