New hires complete forms and enter information online easily with Helios:

On average, it takes 1 to 2 hours for HR staff to process traditional onboarding paperwork.
This time is cut by 90% with Helios, saving staff hours of data entry work and paper/printing costs. Moreover, when your new hire does walk into the office, the conversation can be concise and more productive, focusing on their questions and giving them a truly warm welcome, instead of a pile of paperwork.
Being forward-thinking, the ability to have an online onboarding process like Helios puts us at the forefront. It also helps us recruit better! With Helios, a new hire has to spend only 10 minutes with us instead of almost two hours. Staff time is huge, so I would highly recommend Helios to any district.
