HROnboard helps Cardinia Shire Council realise the benefits of Activity Based Working

HROnboard has helped Cardinia Shire Council become the first Australian Council to implement Activity Based Working.

Cardinia Shire Council's workplace changes have already received the Sir Rupert Hamer Record Management Award, Excellence in eGovernment award, the Innovation Fellowship award, and the Scope communication access accreditation award.

"At Council, we call Activity Based Working a "smarter way of working," says Lucinda Taylor, Cardinia Shire Council’s HR Advisor. "All staff, including our new starters are encouraged and supported to adopt this work style and behave in a way that supports Council’s aspirations of being more connected and cohesive, mobile, dynamic and engaged as well as strive for operational excellence."

For HR, the two big priorities were:

o    Improving the onboarding experience for our new employees

o    Implement business improvements that would support this way of working and reducing the amount of paper used in the office. 

HROnboard, a paperless employee onboarding solution built and developed in Australia, has helped reduce Cardinia Shire Council paper dependence by 70%, and gives new hires the best possible introduction to the organisation. 

HROnboard was selected based on it's ability to meet Cardinia's employee onboarding requirements and it's low cost base being delivered in the cloud.
Peter Forbes, CEO of HROnboard, said of the initiative taken by Cardinia Shire Council, "It's great to see local government improving back office efficiencies while providing a modern, welcoming face to the council through the online portal that new hires engage with to accept their job offers."

Cardinia Shire Council's HR Advisor, Lucinda Taylor, said this about HROnboard, "The best thing about HROnboard is the time it saves us. We have so much going on, so HROnboard enables us to be more efficient, to focus on welcoming our new employees to the organisation and developing capability across the organisation rather than hunting around for paperwork."
