Whether it’s a significant life event such as parental leave or the logistics of an office move, HROnboard’s Onboarding Journeys feature enables you to manage more than just employee onboarding.

HROnboard’s solution allows HR pros to create, manage and personalise journeys for any employee. 

It’s never been easier to manage expectations and communicate useful information and tasks for both team leaders and existing employees.


Let’s explore 3 employee journeys which can be streamlined using Journeys:

1. Return to Work

Employees on parental leave or returning from secondments or injury all transition best when regular updates, expectations and tasks are clearly outlined. Staying in touch with employees during periods of absence is beneficial and ensures the employee continues to feel connected.  

But personalisation of communication is key and historically has been difficult to automate. HR teams can now build mobile first experiences in HROnboard’s Onboarding Journeys feature that contain important return to work information and tailor the communication to the individual’s journey. 

2. Physical Office Relocation  

While you’re thinking of logistics of an office relocation and ensuring the power will be on, your team’s priorities are different. Questions such as “okay great, new office, why?” “When are we moving?” “How long is it going to take me to get to work?” and “How am I going to get stuff like my desk plant to the new office?” abound during an office move.

You might not have the time to individually answer all these important questions.

So to pre-empt the barrage of questions and uncertainty, you can design an Office Move Journey that educates employees about the move and how to navigate the change with information provided at just the right times.

Here’s how an office move journey could look like for your employees:

3. An employee changes role, team or business unit

The practical and emotional needs of an existing employee who is changing role or team mirror those of a new employee.

Think about it – if you were to move to a new team or another business unit within your company, you’d probably experience the same nervous energy associated with starting a new job. Communicating clear expectations of goals, critical tasks, and immersing employees into the new team, role and location are all important considerations.

Using technology to enable both the compliance and induction-related obligations of moving employees into a new role will improve the overall experience, save time and improve productivity.


These are just snapshots of common transitions you may need to help employees navigate during the employee lifecycle. You now have the tools to seamlessly educate employees and provide critical information and tasks, without the need for manual reminders and follow-ups.
