ChiefOnboarding overview

ChiefOnboarding is a cloud-based employee onboarding solution designed primarily to meet the resource hiring and employee onboarding needs of growing startups and small businesses. The application - which can be accessed from any device with an internet connection - helps business managers to plan and organize onboarding sessions for new recruits, to help them become acquainted with the work culture, their job roles, reporting structure and other details.

ChiefOnboarding allows businesses to share custom inquiry forms with new hires to enable them to submit any initial queries before the first day of the job. This helps candidates to come prepared with some basic understanding of the job as well as allows businesses to share some general dos and don'ts with new employees. Managers can also email a checklist that mentions all the essential documents a new hire needs to bring on their first day.

ChiefOnboarding eliminates the need for a physical paper trail and allows both new hires and recruiters to send and receive electronic documents via email. Both parties can digitally sign documents wherever required and provide their approvals instantly. The solution allows users to customize and brand the dashboards to view onboarding status, sessions scheduled, pending tasks and other metrics.

ChiefOnboarding integrates with Slack to automate alerts and notifications. The system delivers automated notifications to both new hires and their hiring managers whenever a ‘to-do’ task is pending or just before an upcoming session. ChiefOnboarding offers a free trial account that allows businesses to onboard up to two new hires. The full edition of the solution is available as a monthly subscription as well as for one-time, per hire payments.

Review Source: Capterra

We were a beta-pilot customer from basically day 1. the guys were VERY cooperative, integrated many feedbacks in super-speedy manner, very impressive. Our 2 new hires so far have liked the tool a lot, just the kind of simplicity we looked for - as users. As admins its a little bit more fumbling to find out how to make it work, not 100% intuitive yet, but I'm sure they will get that fixed soon. Whats a bit more annoying is that the pricing packages offered at launch have been changed some weeks later and we are now battling to get that transitioned... startup problems, will be fixed I guess. Just beware: in Europe when we speak of onboarding we mainly think "getting employees knowledgeable about how the firm works etc, who is who, documentation, etc" - this is what this tool is about and does it very well. In US "employee onboarding" seems to include all the massive paperwork related to employment contract, insurances, policies, etc etc - and thats not part what this is for, other tools that are closer to payroll/HR ERP do that. Anyway, this here is just what we needed. Next milestone: an app!simplicity, speed, small and responsive team
