Posted September 1, 2018 by sapling

Sapling is a renowned platform that allows companies to build better connected, more engaged and higher performing teams through employee on boarding.

If you’re a fast growing mid-market company looking to build a consistent, streamlined employee experience then Sapling’s Onboarding and coreHR HRIS platform aligns well with your needs.  We’re the ideal platform to start efficiently running all of your HR processes. Sapling helps you to provide a consistent employee experience from preboarding to offboarding and it enables you to make data-driven decisions by connecting with the tools you are already using everyday in one place.  

What is Sapling though? Essentially Sapling is twofold product: it is an onboarding solution as well as a best-of-breed coreHR HRIS supercharged around G Suite. With one sole platform serving as the hub for onboarding and HRIS your organization will have a consistent employee experience throughout the employee lifecycle. With Sapling; you'll be able to automate all of your HR processes including your onboarding, promotions, internal transfers and exits with e-signaturing, custom workflows, time off, org charts, calendar integrations and more.

On the onboarding side, Sapling streamlines and automates employee workflows from onboarding to offboarding, and also elevates the employee experience by providing a consistent experience. Therefore, every action item gets tracked and assigned to a timeline to the appropriate stakeholder.  Sapling’s main goal is to create a red carpet onboarding experience for all the players involved in setting up employees for success; from the HR team, to the managers, to the people operations team, to payroll, IT, and to your new hires. With our robust, company-branded dashboard you can centralize communication and track your employees’ onboarding tasks, so nothing in their automated workflows is missed. Sapling’s HR software is built for communication and collaboration with your teammates with comments and @mentions, so your inbox is saved from an unmanageable amount of emails and helps to keep conversations at the workflow level and provides you with document and email templates, triggers notifications.  So no more chasing people on different communication tools!  

With Sapling, the new hire onboarding experience is focused on acclimating your new employees to your company culture and building their employee record before day one. Rather than your new hire’s first day consisting of filling out tax forms and non-disclosures, or tasking them with studying a 60-page employee handbook can be done before. Within Sapling new hire onboarding includes a timeline of the company history, viewing their colleagues profiles, and reviewing tasks they can complete before they start-- so that on your new hire’s first day can be filled with meaningful introductions, early learning, and celebration. We want your new hire onboarding to set your team up for a successful and fruitful working relationship.  Implementing a new hire onboarding process for your new employees is critical in setting them up for success at your organization for the long haul. Here at Sapling, we believe that when you create a great new hire onboarding experience, HR and People Operations can better support their teams to do their best work.

But what happens after onboarding? Our product has expanded from just onboarding into coreHR HRIS because most HR systems are often a mile wide (meaning they offer everything from payroll to benefits + beyond) but an inch deep (they don’t offer “best of” anything, just mediocre solutions across the board). We wanted to solve that problem by being API first, as well as becoming the only system that is supercharged for G Suite. We use G Suite everyday and know that most fast growing, mid market sized companies are too. With Sapling you can build, filter, and view all of you HR data easily. And then all of that data integrates into Google Sheets so you can share the data your team for additional analysis. You can create configurable reports with the right data to help your team’s unlock HR insights with easy to build, customizable reporting and analytics. Sapling’s advanced permissioning gives your teams access to the data they need and are approved for, while giving you complete control over your data. For instance, you can track and audit the history of any field in Sapling, so you have complete control of employee data. The customizable workflows, document uploads and templates, and automated emails eliminate time wasted with manual data entry and data duplication so you can spend more time engaging your employees throughout their journey. Then once you build custom reports, with just one click you can export that data directly into G Sheets. With the Google Calendar integration, you get friendly alerts of your team members work anniversaries and birthdays other upcoming milestones for each team member at six months, one year, two years and beyond. It’s the small touches of remembering these milestones that help employees feel engaged. Another element of our supercharged G Suite integration is with Gmail. So now, all the tasks can be managed and marked as complete from inside your inbox.

Sapling’s HRIS offers time off management. The interface is designed to be simple to use for your team, managers and administrators. You can actually create custom policies to track and manage employee time-off with visibility and consistency. What’s great is this can also be used in parallel with Sapling’s calendar integrations for a full and comprehensive view across the organization.

Sapling’s HR platform allows you to spend less time doing manual HR administrative tasks. Sapling seeks to eliminate manual data entry for HR and provides a seamless employee experience. Therefore, Sapling is also integrates with the other tools you are already using. Once Sapling is implemented, it becomes the system of record for all of your employee data and syncs across your key systems including: ATS, payroll, benefits and productivity tools.
