Employee Onboarding/Induction Apps

Ensure new starters are suitably briefed and equipped from day one with Nutshell’s mobile onboarding apps. They’re all ready-built, 100% customisable to your workflow and come free with a Nutshell subscription…

What is an employee induction app?

Whether you work on construction sites or in an office environment, one of the most important aspects of people management is delivering a thorough induction and onboarding process. Not only does this ensure new starters have a clear brief of the task at hand, but it’s also crucial for safety and compliance. This can be really challenging when your induction pack is on paper, given how often internal processes and safety standards change.

Employee Onboarding Apps ensure a thorough induction process by giving staff everything they need to get started in the palm of their hand. You can deliver all essential task management and site safety information digitally, with a sign-off process to confirm understanding, and even track individual competencies for compliance purposes.

How do I choose a risk assessment mobile app?

Not only is a botched onboarding responsible for lower productivity and staff morale, but could be devastating in physical environments. Construction site workers are actually three times more likely to suffer an injury in their first month on the job, with gaps in the site induction often being responsible for the incident. Persons in charge need a way of keeping track of how staff have been inducted, and if there are any knowledge or skills gaps before assigning them to projects.

Our Employee Onboarding App gives you everything you need when welcoming a new starter, whether in the flesh or completely remotely. You can deliver information around their daily duties, internal processes, company policies and handbook, with the ability to quickly and easily update this welcome pack whenever necessary.

Nutshell’s Site Induction App is more popular in the physical industries where the priority is site safety, productivity, and tracking competencies. With checks and approval flows for each stage of the induction, you can ensure no briefings are being skipped or misunderstood. You can also reference this competency data in the future, should you wish to for compliance or planning purposes.

Each of our onboarding apps can be linked seamlessly with the Employee Handbook App, often managed by the HR team to give staff wider information around internal processes such as sickness, benefits, leave requests and payroll. This means staff have a single hub for all essential information when they start, helping them feel less overwhelmed and better connected to the business.

Why Nutshell?

The trouble with off-the-shelf new hire onboarding software is that it rarely talks to the rest of your business software. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow, expensive and leads to mistakes and data blind-spots… which defeats the object in going digital in the first place.

Imagine if your induction app could automatically populate schedules of work based on skills and competencies, all on its own. Well, with Nutshell it can.

Nutshell apps are 100% customisable to your business. Not just the superficial stuff – every part of your workflow, from data-capture and line-manager approval, to processing, reporting and integrating with your existing back-office systems.
