Onboarding a new team member can be a challenging task, especially if they have limited experience in your industry or workplace conditions. There are many things to consider, from understanding company policies and procedures to navigating complex Awards, Agreements, technology and other business integrations. However, with the help of Agreement Visualisation™ this process can become much more manageable for your HR/Payroll and Operations teams and your business overall.

One of the most significant challenges of onboarding a new team member is ensuring that they understand the various Awards, Agreements, policies and procedures used by the company. This can be an incredibly time-consuming process, as there may be many different documents and processes to go through, and it can be challenging to ensure that the new employee fully understands them. Interpreting industrial instruments, for one, can be a very complex and confusing process for any new employees. We wrote a blog about this last week, you can read it here. Then on top of this, if there are any updates or changes to these documents, it can be difficult to ensure that the new team member understands the impacts.

Another significant challenge is getting your new employee up to speed with the technology. Depending on the software used, there may be a steep learning curve, and it can take some time for the new employee to become proficient in its use.

Agreement Visualisation™ (AV) is a tool that can help to mitigate some of these challenges. The tool allows for the visualisation of complex Awards and Agreements, making it easier for new employees to understand the interpretation and rules your organisation has adopted. By presenting your interpretation on a one-page map, Agreement Visualisation™ can help to reduce the amount of time it takes to onboard a new team member. The old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” applies here. The tool also helps reduce room for error when interpreting timesheets and processing payroll.

Agreement Visualisation™ can also be used to help new employees navigate complex software. By providing a visual aid on how interpretations of these agreements are determined and how they apply in your organisation, this tool makes it much clearer for new employees helping them respond accurately to any enquiries related to these industrial instruments. This can help them understand and become more proficient in the application of these conditions in your organisation.

By being presented in an understandable format, Agreement Visualisation™ can help you reduce the amount of time it takes to onboard your new employees and ensure that they get up to speed in their knowledge and capability as quickly as possible. To find out more about AV, visit our website.
