Go Paperless with Onboarding

Eliminate all of the paper forms, postage and copies with SilkRoad Onboarding electronic form capabilities, reducing costs for their organization. Instead of days and days of orientation, new hires receive just the right information. They click through, accept, validate. So simple. No copying, shipping or scanning.

Electronic Forms

Build the Forms You Need Fast - Just Drag and Drop

Create as many eForms as you need with drag and drop speed. Once the eForm is created, you have the flexibility to edit and update the eForm whenever needed. Use eForm Builder across all SilkRoad Onboarding events. eForms are automatically responsive to screen sizes.

  • Control and define your list values for dropdowns, check boxes, and radio buttons.
  • Edit any values anytime – those edits will be effective moving forward
  • Choose from basic or advanced elements, including an eSignature and Acknowledgement.
  • Use field validation
  • Brand your forms with corporate logo

Improve Employee Retention

Early engagement with your organization’s culture and brand improves new employee retention, minimizes first-day no-shows, and early employee turnover – those “quick quits” that stall corporate momentum.

Automate and manage all employee career events to further drive engagement throughout the employee’s career and reduce risk around events such as offboarding, transfers, promotions, department moves, acquisitions, and other actions to ensure that all parties accomplish all steps in the process.

Do More than Onboarding

Most employee career events require that a consistent process, workflow and forms be completed. SilkRoad can be adapted easily to handle employee offboarding, corporate location moves, mergers and acquisitions, employee relocations (expat situations), or channel partner and customer onboarding.
