Successful recruitment involves attracting talented people. You need to convince them there’s a rewarding role in your organization and they’ll become a valued member of a team. Ideally they’ll become productive from day one, seamlessly assimilated into your organization, given access to resources and connected to all the right people. Here’s how we help.
Your HR system is the primary source of staff details and these are normally configured to populate the Google Workspace directory automatically. With the help of line managers and IT professionals Patronum onboarding policies are swiftly set up to give new members of staff access to Google corporate data and a customised Google Workspace according to their role. Hence once Patronum policies are set up they’ll utilise Google Groups and Labels to automatically allocate resources to a Google Workspace including Google Drive, Google Calendars, Gmail email signature, Google Contact shared contacts, they will even have their colleagues’ contact details automatically added to your smart phone. Your new member of staff can now collaborate with everyone around them – an important component of job satisfaction.
To retain employees in the first 6 months it is important to increase their competence, demonstrate their value to the business, foster in-work training, and ensure they collaborate with colleagues who know how to get things done. However staff often do not stay in the same role, they have to move around sometimes on a temporary basis for business flexibility and learning opportunities. This means changing teams and the prospect of new work that ideally plays to their strengths. They may move in and out of a Google group and their access to resources will be applied or removed by Patronum policies automatically. Their email signature is updated automatically to reflect their latest role. This gives your company the ability to encourage skill or professional development, increase staff networking, job satisfaction, flexibility and ultimately productivity.
In businesses of any size significant HR resources are devoted to employment issues, such as compensation, employee conflict, changing personal circumstances, legal responsibilities and compliance. Patronum policies are set up to automatically give access to essential work information such as health and safety videos, company handbooks and staff training materials on Google Drive depending on their Google User attributes. Patronum security policies regularly review Google Drive sharing and data retention. Occasionally people invoke the right to be forgotten and removing them from Google completely requires synchronization with personal devices via Patronum Contact Sharing.
With the average staff tenure of around 3 years for young people and up to 10 years for older staff, managing the end of employee life cycles, offboarding, is an essential, though non productive exercise. Patronum policies are established to move employee data automatically to new homes, ensuring ongoing compliance after an employee has departed and cleaning up external data sharing.
