HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GoCo.io, a leading provider of cloud-based HR, benefits, and payroll software, today announced a new, game-changing feature that empowers HR pros to digitally reimagine and automate any HR workflow, including onboarding, termination, employee requests, performance reviews, and virtually any other HR-related process or checklist.
In a survey of HR professionals, GoCo recently found that the majority of small businesses are still using paper or spreadsheets to manage checklists and multi-step processes like employee onboarding. Even companies that report having a dedicated software solution for HR, such as an HRIS, often revert to email and spreadsheets when it comes to onboarding and termination checklists, because their software solutions aren’t flexible enough to support all the tasks and to-dos on their lists.
In response, GoCo set out to build a feature that empowers HR professionals to bring their existing tasks and checklists to life digitally inside of GoCo. With GoCo Workflows, HR teams can use a drag-and-drop editor to build a workflow for almost any HR-related process or to-do list. Users can create tasks with dynamic assignments and due dates, and track the status of each assignment at-a-glance.
“We’re truly passionate about helping HR spend less time on manual processes, and our new Workflows feature is going to be a game-changer for automating those processes,” said Nir Leibovich, CEO and Co-Founder of GoCo. “Most importantly, we built Workflows to be ultra flexible, so HR can not only automate any checklist, but they can be the architects of those flows, and build them in a way that’s tailored to their unique needs.”
Some of the most common workflows that users are automating with GoCo include:
- Employee onboarding checklists
- Offboarding checklists
- New-hire orientation programs
- Performance evaluations
- Employee requests (for promotions, salary changes, equipment and supplies, etc.)
- Employee surveys
Key features include:
- Drag and drop workflow templates
- Dynamic task assignments and due dates
- Insert rich text, forms, and documents
- At-a-glance view of task statuses
“GoCo Workflows has literally changed my HR life,” said Sarah Burch, HR Manager and GoCo customer. “It’s automated, you can build it yourself, you can customize it, you can do whatever you want with it. It’s fantastic.”
And with COVID-19 rewiring the way that businesses operate, GoCo Workflows also support remote employee onboarding, remote employee engagement, and frees up time for HR managers to play a more strategic role in supporting business objectives.
“We started building Workflows before the pandemic, but since COVID-19 it’s become even more clear that HR needs to automate and digitize their to-do lists,” said Leibovich. “GoCo Workflows really delivers on that vision, and we’re excited to give HR pros the tools they need to support a remote or socially distanced workforce.”
