Feature

Dialogue

Applicant Tracking System (ATS)

HR Managers can post jobs with top job boards directly from benefitConnect, where applicants can be screened, tracked, communicated with and scheduled for interviews.  Once a hiring decision has been made they are easily moved to Onboarding.

 

Onboarding vs. Orientation

 

Within benefitsConnect the two are quite different.  benefitsConnect streamlines the process for hiring new employees in several ways:  1) One-time entry, 2) Employee self service portal, so that the information is the most accurate it can be, 3) Tracking completed documents, and 4) Compliance which has employees sign-off on policy specific documents, i.e. employee handbooks, benefit booklets. Tasks can also be assigned to team members for training purposes.

 

Orientation – is on-the-job knowledge gathering, assigning mentors, learning how the company operates with feet on the ground.  Meeting team members that the new hire will be regularly interacting with to get their job done.

 

Payroll

benefitsConnect has the capability to connect to 3rd party systems, such as accounting software, via an API or File Feed with import functionality. The connection type will depend on the 3rd party system.

 

If a client transitions mid-year, we will take the taxable benefit year-to-date amount from their benefits provider and continue to add onto that YTD amount. All YTD information will be up to date no matter what time of the year the implementation starts.

 

You can have as many bank accounts as your organization currently uses to run payroll.

Communication
