Uniting Care Qld
How one of Australia’s largest not-for-profit slashed onboarding time
United Care Queensland (UCQ) is a courageous and creative health and community services provider and one of the largest charities in Australia.
With over 17,000 employees in 460 locations across the Gold Coast and Northern Territories, UCG needed a specialised onboarding system that would help manage their employees and nearly 10,000 volunteers who donate their time.
A high priority project was identified by UCQ requiring the recruitment of hundreds of support staff in a very short timeframe, it was agreed that the existing new employee onboarding process would not be suitable for this, and they should seek an improved experience.
After implementing Onboard Express, UCQ reduced the total elapsed time to onboard a new employee through to the payroll, from 2 weeks to 2 days.
Onboard Express has transformed UCQ’s new employee onboarding experience, as well as delivering substantial cost savings and business efficiencies. At a time when high-quality talent is scarce, a highly professional first impression, speed in making the offer and a positive employee experience are essential, along with professional guidance to implement this advanced digital solution by the first-class team at Onboard Express.
Seamless recruitment of hundreds of support staff in a very short timeframe.
UCQ were using their recruitment software solution to facilitate new employee onboarding. Whilst it was not the perfect onboarding solution it was deemed fit for purpose until…
A new project to recruit hundreds of support staff in a very short period kicked off. The key stakeholders believed they could no longer utilise the existing new employee onboarding process and should investigate alternate options.
What they needed was a solution that could ensure compliance with their offer and acceptance process whilst improving the new employee and hiring manager experience.
Their current all-in-one recruitment software had it’s limitations and restraints, hindering the onboarding and staff management of such a large organisation.
Results AFTER IMPLEMENTING :
After implementing Onboard Express (best-of-breed onboarding software), UCQ reduced the total elapsed time to onboard a new employee through to the payroll, from 2 weeks to 2 days.
Following the reduction of the time to onboard from 2 weeks to 2 days within BlueCare, other UCQ divisions are now lining up to implement Onboard Express. More recently an issue around the management of existing employee contract variations has highlighted another area where Onboard Express can be deployed to reduce risk and improve the experience for all stakeholders.
Why UCQ selected Onboard Express
Following a comprehensive market scan, it was deemed that Onboard Express was the only provider that could provide UCQ with the complete solution. The ability to conduct the entire onboarding process from a mobile device coupled with the employment contract construction engine that enforced a consistent, compliant process was exactly what UCQ required.
The most important thing for any successful onboarding implementation is to ensure that clear lines of communication are established within the customer organisation.
UCQ did an exceptional job of establishing onboarding pods that disseminated the required information on a needed basis. This meant that the testing of the employment contract generator was streamlined, and the system was live within a very short period of time.
