How do you know if new employees have read key documents?

When a new employee joins your organization a smooth onboarding process will ensure they transition to their role effectively. The new employee will want to complete the onboarding process quickly so they can begin their new role. You want to ensure they have completed all stages of the onboarding process thoroughly and understand your expectations and standards. Reading and understanding key documents is an essential part of this process. Today's modern systems can help achieve both of these objectives!

As part of the onboarding process, key policies, procedures, SOP's and other important documents relevant to their role will need to be read and understood. The sooner they can get up to speed with your organizations way of doing things, the better. Not only will they understand what is required of them, they will also feel productive, part of the team and have confidence in their ability to perform their role well.
