PA uncovers ways to optimize service delivery processes. With this information, ServiceNow PA drives continual service improvement of HR.
4. Automate the Onboarding with Ease
The first impression is the most important impression. For an employee, the onboarding process is the first impression of the company. If this very first interaction is less than ideal, it changes the perception of the company and this could lead to attrition.
Research by Pomeroy Inc. reveals that 32 percent of global executives say the onboarding they experienced was poor.
The onboarding process is one of the most labour and time intensive-intense HR tasks. Usually, the onboarding process involves employees providing repetitive information in various documents via back and forth emails. This process makes it hard to keep track of documentation and complete tasks quickly.

ServiceNow HR Automation offers a cloud solution that integrates with all HR processes and systems and is accessible to employees and HR staff through any device.
