Caring well for your new hires is ministry stewardship. A streamlined onboarding process helps to eliminate stress for both the ministry administrator and the new hire. It also ensures that you have all of the necessary paperwork completed and filed in a timely manner.
It’s important to develop a clear onboarding process for your new employees and staff to follow. Once you have completed the interview process and are ready to make the candidate an offer, be prepared to complete the following onboarding tasks, at a minimum:
This is just a recommended starting list. Your ministry may have additional steps for supporting new hires.
Automating your onboarding process is an effective way to immerse your new hires in company culture. Ministries that do this are able to have new employees complete much of the paperwork before their first day of work, which means they can start training on day one.
Automating your onboarding process is part of the Human Capital Management (HCM) feature offered by MinistryWorks®. HCM allows administrators to track in real-time where the applicant is in their paperwork completion and it ensures you don’t miss out on receiving required documentation like the W-4 or the I-9.
HCM makes it easy for administrators to spend less time on paperwork, devote more time to training, and stay on mission. HCM also offers secure document storage, painless benefits management, and seamless payroll integration.
