Challenge

Fundamental data such as dates-of-birth, PPS numbers, addresses, passports, visas, and bank details were scattered across paper, emails and whichever other communication methods new hirees were using at the time – which left Butlers facing an uphill struggle to onboard efficiently and keep employee data safe. With a growing workforce and the spectre of GDPR on the horizon, Butlers found itself in need of a quicker and more controllable process for onboarding.

  • The main drivers for finding a new onboarding solution were:
  • Delays with onboarding employees
  • Incorrect or missing employee information
  • Too much burden on middle management to chase and handle employee information

Benefits

PlanetVerify has helped Butlers Chocolates replace the HR headache of onboarding via multiple communication channels with a neater, smarter approach that puts the onus on employees to upload their data and documents via smartphone.It has speeded up and streamlined the onboarding process, freed middle management from the administrative burden that previously went with it and has reduced the risk of sensitive data being lost or misplaced. “PlanetVerify has made the link between employee and head office a straight line, as opposed to the former zig-zag involving accounts, HR and middle management. Overall, it has made the employment relationship much more efficient.” – Conleth Meehan

“You can’t batch process application admin tasks when candidate information is arriving in bits and pieces and you are chasing that information manually. In the old days when we were using methods like phone and email to contact applicants, this meant we kept having to interrupt our work to handle admin. PlanetVerify transformed the situation by placing the duty of application completion onto applicants and allowing its own automated system do the rest.”
