I would like to see country specific information relating to contracts, minimum wages, holiday entitlement and various other important ready to view in real-time on a library within Workable.  I think that would be very useful.

The checklist can only work with foresight and an understanding of relevant laws and rights pertaining to certain Countries. 

Onboarding checklists are different per Country and I have found that delays are almost certain without the right and appropriate guidelines/access to information. Does anyone have a “go-to” source?

@GlobalRecruiter Regional requirements will always be a factor, and I’m really into the concept of domestic customization – a universal template feeding a build-a-list engine. In the interim, hoping having a baseline saves a bit of time!

It’s an excellent go to and starting point for sure!  Looking forward to update on this! ;-)

@Damien Such helpful checklist with all the necessary information in it. It makes the new managers and small/to/ large businesses to be ahead of their plans. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 what I want to add is that building an onboarding system is not an easy step. All those stages needs to be customized and aligned with the culture, vision and mission of the company and each of them is a complete project itself. I’m glad that I had a chance to work on all of those stages and build them from the scratch in my previous company that I was working at. It was great experience. Just a humble suggestion, maybe you also want to add to your checklist: Building a Buddy System (someone from the team) can help the new employees a lot and reduce their concerns. At the same time, it’s a kind of motivation for the team members to be chosen/volunteered as a guide for the new comers. And of course creating a guide for the buddies is important too. I hope it will be useful for everyone.
