Onboarding new employees is one of the most critical business processes in our organizations, today. The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) affirmed this in a recent blog published, stating “69 percent of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they experienced great onboarding.”

Additionally, according to a CAP Study, it can cost a company 16 to 20% of the annual salary for most positions to replace that employee, so getting this process right is a key business driver. A critical step in the onboarding process is ensuring your new employees have Day 1 access to the tools, resources, and critical business applications they need. If you can increase the speed with which an employee is feeling productive and connected to their team, you increase the likelihood of retention.

Another very critical business process is that of employee termination and preventing ex-employee access. According to an Intermedia Risk Report, 44% of millennial employees still have access to applications and systems from their previous jobs.  This can create a significant risk to the business and often gets flagged during compliance reviews.

Today, we are pleased to announce that we are partnering with BambooHR to help HR Practitioners align with IT to improve their onboarding processes by eliminating the need for IT to manage user administration and demonstrate compliance by automating employee termination and transfer business processes.

By leveraging our integration with BambooHR, you’ll be able to use your existing BambooHR as the system or record. Additionally, you’ll be able to automatically provision user data from BambooHR to Active Directory as you bring new employees into your organization, and ensure they have Day 1 access to the critical business applications they’ll need to be productive.

Through Idaptive’s provisioning, deprovisioning, and lifecycle management workflows, you can seamlessly create new employee accounts, securely grant access to applications based on roles, automatically route application requests and manage entitlements, and ultimately revoke access when employees leave your organization. Instituting a smooth onboarding process does not mean compromising on security. Zero trust security goals can be attained while delivering a smooth and efficient on/off-boarding program to HR+Security+Employees!...Zero Trust with Zero Friction.
