There are many aviation recruitment agencies available to help you hire the qualified talent within the industry. However, the real challenge starts when it comes to planning for what comes next, which is effective induction and onboarding of each new hire. Planning an effective hiring process is not easy and has its own unique challenges. As the need for hiring hundreds of employees arises, management and automation of this process become more important.
Due to the fact that airlines business require operations across the globe makes it more challenging to plan and monitor. And employee onboarding doesn’t come alone. It comes with off-boarding which seeks the same level of attention from you. Both of these human-centric processes require extra care and attention in detail.
How efficient is your new hire onboarding process?
Mark Lapidus, CEO of Amedeo states: “Airlines are exploring how advances in technology can assist from a customer relationship/sales point of view but also help improve operational efficiencies and reduce costs” In the Aviation Industry Leadership Report from KPMG.
It is time to welcome new hires paperless and hassle-free.
Whether your organisation is a small local airline or a large international one, leveraging new technologies to ensure operational process quality and efficiency is crucial to fulfilling ambition in aviation.
Here is what happens when new hire onboarding is manually and poorly done:
New hire won’t engage, won’t feel connected. You don’t provide impressive pre-start communication to the new hire. First impression matters. If the new hire spends his/her first day by reading not very appealing company policies and procedures, they will not feel engaged at all.
Manual and repetitive tasks, for each employee such as sending contracts, collecting background checklists, references are dealt with email or paper communications making it impossible to manage for a large number of hiring. Don’t rely on your memory – making sure each hire gets the attention they seek is important.
Decreased office staff productivity and team morale will lead to frustration from managers and leaders if the tasks are not completed in time, new hire set up is delayed.
The process is prone to errors, which can lead to misunderstandings about overall company culture and how processes are handled. Preparing an induction checklist and keeping it on the shelf is not enough. An automated process flow that you can make sure each individual that is involved complete their tasks on time and give you full visibility.
Here is why you should streamline employee onboarding and off-boarding process:
1. Increased productivity
How can you free-up time for the real value work? By eliminating repetitive and manual tasks that take up a lot of time and resources for each hire. Airlines that understand the true cost of productivity can make good use of technologies to give themselves more in-house control of their solutions and give employees flexibility.

2. Talent oriented results
With an efficient and properly planned process, the new hires will effectively be onboarded in the process. A successful onboarding program will equip new hires with the tools, and system access they will need to succeed in their new jobs on time. Crew members, pilots, technicians, managers no matter what their role is, they will have the resources needed to become a fully engaged and culturally aware member of their team.
3. Say goodbye to paper documents

Kianda Forms allows all documents to be uploaded to the data source of your choice and signed off by employees with e-signature feature even before they start.
