HROnboard is the newest addition to JobAdder’s recently launched partner marketplace, promising to bring a unique value add to recruiting professionals. This integration will create a link between recruiting and onboarding candidates into a business. “We are pleased to bring further efficiency to the recruitment sector through this integration with HROnboard, which will guide recruiters from initial job vacancy right through to onboarding a new staff member” JobAdder Sales Director Darren Watts explains. Further information on this partnership can be found here. HROnboard is cloud-based employee onboarding software that helps organisations manage the job offer and new hire process. The software is built to free HR teams from tedious paperwork and to help them engage new employees before Day One. This is done through a branded new hire portal where new hires can complete all of the documents and provide the necessary information for them to start work. Onboarding tasks can also be assigned to the new hire or to other employees to make sure everything is ready for Day One. Peter Forbes, CEO and founder of HROnboard said, “for those already using JobAdder, you know how great a match it is for HROnboard. We’re both focussed on the same thing - turning candidates into employees faster, better and with higher levels of engagement.” JobAdder is a complete, cloud-based RMS. Recruitment professionals, both at employment agencies and in-house, use JobAdder’s recruitment software to advertise for roles, track and place candidates. Its other key functionality is as a database, where recruiters can store huge amounts of client and contact information securely that can be accessed at any time, from any mobile device. After a candidate is successfully placed with JobAdder, the candidate is then sent through to HROnboard where the onboarding process commences. Instead of thinking of these processes as two separate procedures, the integration between JobAdder and HROnboard will allow them to work seamlessly in tandem.

Commissioned by Navigo Research, a research and advisory team operating under the HR Solutions provider Navigo, the report is based on a survey of over 288 organisations representing almost 690,000 employees. Respondents provided information on HR software used, technology adoption across functional areas, satisfaction rates, age of systems, expenditure and future trends.   Founder of Navigo Research and co-author of the report Peter Forbes said "The report provides a great insight into the attitudes and landscape of the Australian HR Software industry. Organisations responded that they are unhappy with their old legacy HR/Payroll Systems. Over 50% of HR Payroll systems are over 7 years old and are on-premise. Cloud systems still have a low adoption but there is a desire for them. Spending outlook for HR technologies remains strong. We still find the number one motivator for investment is improved operational efficiency while cost and budget is the main roadblock." The survey, conducted between February to March 2014, is for organisations of more then 100 employees across Australia and New Zealand.   The survey results are divided into two reports - HR Systems Adoption Report and HR Systems Management Report. We look at system adoption rates across the different HR Functional areas, how systems are deployed and the expected expenditure in the next 12 months. We also delve into the various aspects associated with the management of HR systems. Asking what are the major roadblocks and motivators for investing into HR Technology and researching into SaaS deployment, usability and data management.
