Overview of New Hire
Creating the New Hire record is the first step in the onboarding process. An approved request is required prior to creating a record. Most New Hire records are created when an applicant is selected from a certificate. Information from the applicant's record and the certificate create the New Hire record. You also have the flexibility to create a record manually in situations when an applicant is not selected from a certificate. For example, direct hire appointments, etc.
Once the record is created you will assign tasks to initiate the onboarding process. Onboarding tasks can include but are not limited to: completing forms, uploading documents, completing a background investigation, and accomplishing other agency related assignments. These tasks can be tracked and reported on to ensure the onboarding process is progressing. After new hires have completed the tasks, you can review their information and transmit the appropriate files to the eOPF system.
