BambooHR Releases Employee Self-Onboarding and Performance Management Features

New Features Simplify Complicated Processes to Help HR Meaningfully Contribute in Key Areas

LINDON, Utah--()--BambooHR, the industry's first vendor dedicated to powering strategic HR in small to medium-sized businesses, today announced it has added two new features to its HR management platform: Employee Self-Onboarding and Performance Management. These new features strengthen the operational efficiency of HR, allowing users to quickly onboard, measure, engage and manage their employees’ performance, further propelling HR into a much-needed, more strategic capacity.

“For too long, HR has been unnecessarily burdened by manual processes. We are thrilled to provide intuitive features and services that increase business value and free HR to do their most important work,” said Ben Peterson, CEO and co-founder of BambooHR. “These new features will make onboarding and managing performance simple and painless. We feel the global SMB market deserves technology that propels them into the future, and we’re excited to be a part of the solution.”

Employee Self-Onboarding

Onboarding a new employee is often error prone, a heavy burden and can require a lot of follow-up with all involved, and 43 percent of employees report they believe that time and money are wasted on ineffective onboarding processes.

Through BambooHR’s Employee Self-Onboarding, businesses can easily and efficiently set up all onboarding tasks within their core HRIS. They need only fill out minimal information to create a new hire packet. The packet is emailed to the new employee’s personal email where employees can complete their tasks, fill out the get-to-know-you form and electronically sign their onboarding documents — all before their first day on the job.

True to BambooHR’s mission, onboarding has been reinvented to impact strategic outcomes, instead of just stopping with automation through employee self-service. BambooHR’s Employee Self-Onboarding affects employee time-to-contribution, performance, engagement and even retention by fueling connections within the company and carefully orchestrating their experience as a new employee.

Performance Management

Performance reviews have become a headache for everyone involved. They’re bloated and overly complicated, making it difficult to interpret the results. Sometimes they even backfire, reducing employee productivity.

BambooHR’s new performance management solution offers an easy, meaningful and motivating solution that focuses on short cycle-times, low barriers and clear results. BambooHR’s Performance Management facilitates real conversation by prompting, priming and providing a process for open, helpful feedback.

Features of Performance Management include goal management, self-assessments, manager assessments and an all-new report that makes it easy to get insight into what’s happening with your employees and understand their level of engagement and performance.

Now serving over 4,000 customers in more than 80 countries, BambooHR’s newly enhanced platform gives businesses the tools they need to successfully improve their HR function, better preparing them for the changing dynamics of today's workplace than any other solution.
