HR Glossary


Onboarding, while sounding a bit clunky and jargon-y, is a useful term for manager and HR personnel. It signifies the process of bringing on new staff into the business, but in a way that doesn’t just stop at the interview. Onboarding carries new employees through the process of the offer and acceptance, induction, tasks such as payroll, tax and superannuation compliance, and other initial training. Businesses with streamlined onboarding procedures see smooth integration of new hires into the existing workforce and reduce time spent in administration. Seeing these as an aggregate rather than isolated tasks cuts down on duplication of work and ensures accuracy and compliance with company procedures.
