Drastic time savings in employee onboarding

$100,000 saved in onboarding and efficiency

"It really made a huge difference to the process, because a lot of the time the people weren’t returning their paperwork. It just eliminated the need for the back and forth and the chasing up."

HR Manager, Glue Store / JD Sports

Jodie's team is responsible for all Glue Stores, as well as, JD Sports stores in Australia.

Challenge

In the absence of a true HRIS, Glue's HR manager was running around blind data-wise much of the time. With the HR department having just three employees overseeing the 2,000 workers, the manual process was tiresome and error-prone. In addition, Glue onboards hundreds of new employees annually with a significant spike in casual hires around major shopping seasons like Christmas. Finding a quicker and more reliable way to run HR processes was therefore top of mind for Jodie, the HR Manager.

Finding a quicker and more reliable way to run HR processes was therefore top of mind for Jodie, the HR Manager. Here's why she chose Flare: 

Greater onboarding efficiency

Flare has helped centralise employee data and streamline the onboarding process. Now instead of the manual process, the HR department needs only click one button and everyone gets their welcome email and the accompanying documentation.

Once the employee completes their details, an email is sent to the payroll department with all the details of the new hire. The payroll manager no longer needs to print out the documents as it’s all compact, simplified and well-formatted.

Easy customisation

Flare has a degree of flexibility that made it easier to customise features to align with the HR team’s objectives. In particular, the email alert sent to the payroll department after onboarding had to have all the requisite information since incomplete data would render the email useless.

Flare’s development team working together with the HR and tech departments ensured the email that payroll received had all the information needed so they didn’t have to manually refer to the employee’s folder.

Exclusive employee benefits

On top of Accor’s employee benefits package, Christy has also provided employees with access to over 30+ retail discounts from Flare’s Benefits platform. 

It just eliminated the need for the back and forth and the chasing up."
