ONBOARDING Project Enhancements

Read about enhancements that have been made to the ONBOARDING Project to date.

2017

Enhancements have been made to the ONBOARDING Solution, which were made to accommodate new employee types and to enhance compliance. Specific details for each category are as follows:

Use the ONBOARDING Solution for Additional Employee Type New Hires

  • MSP new hires can now be onboarded via the Solution.
  • Short Term Exceptions:  an “Appointment End Date” field was added to the Offer Letter Data Entry Page in order to accommodate this employee type. 
  • Foreign Visitors: (Career Staff, MSP and STE) Core New Hire forms were modified to gather data necessary to process Foreign Visitors.  By separating the Oath/Patent and I-9 Form, the Oath can be optional for Foreign Visitors and permanent residents. 

Compliance Enhancements

  • Oath/Patent:
    • The Oath & Patent and the I-9 Form are now in separate signing ceremonies.  This enables the solution to accommodate foreign visitors, which are not required to sign the Oath.
  • Form I-9:
    • The new functionality and separate signing ceremony allows for Section 2 of the I-9 to be completed within 3 days of the start date, when needed.
    • The form I-9 can be restarted in the case of data entry errors in Section 1.
  • The Amended Offer Letter:
    • In case of a change in start date after an offer was accepted, an amended offer letter can be generated within the Onboarding Solution during the signing ceremony. This step takes place during the Oath and Patent ceremony; the system will recognize that the signing ceremony date and start date do not match, and prompt the user to determine if an amended offer letter is needed.
  • W4:
    • The 2017 version of the W-4 is in the solution. 

See the Quick Reference documents in the Training Resources Library for more details.   

2016

  • The HR Representative’s phone number field has been added to Offer Letter. Once added in the Data Entry Screen, it populates fields in the Offer Letter and the Welcome Letter.
  • Grid lines have been added to the “View Existing Onboardings” screen in Sales Force.
  • Both the HR Representative and new hire receive e-mail notifications when WitnessCeremony is complete.
  • The HR Representative can “toggle” on and off the background clause in the Offer Letter.
  • A link has been added to the Account Creator e-mail that will allow the HR Initiator to gainaccess directly back into the new hire’s record.
  • The Witness Ceremony reminder email to the HR Initiator now includes the name of the New Hire.
  • Result message appears when new hire’s record is updated in Sales Force with email and A/D Username.
