Onboarding, also known as organizational socialization, refers to the mechanism through which new employees acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and behaviors in order to become effective organizational members and insiders. It is the process of integrating a new employee into the organization and its culture. Onboarding also may include things like setting up a proper working environment and receiving access to the company’s resources, knowledge base and receiving training.
For the growing company, organizing a repeatable process like new Employee Onboarding is quite time-consuming. Every time, HR needs to create a big number of identical issues and assign them to the responsible people. Let’s see how can you streamline that workflow via Jira subtasks template.
With Jira, every single step of the onboarding process may be a subtask linked to a single Jira issue created per new employee.
With the Easy Templates for Jira issues add-on, it’s very easy to create a Jira Template that contains dedicated subtasks.
Create a Jira issue (as a mockup) for your process including all necessary subtasks with proper info and fields (e.g. Description, Component, Priority, Assignee). If you forget any tasks at this step - don’t worry - you’ll be able to add them later on using the “Manage Templates” feature.
Save a Jira issue as a Template
Your subtask template will be created.
Next time you have a new employee to onboard - Create a ticket from the template. The new Jira issue will be created and the subtasks populated automatically.
Using the Templates for Employee Onboarding workflow your organization will save a tremendous amount of time creating repeatable issues and related subtasks for Jira templates.
Try Easy Templates for Jira issues on Jira Cloud, Server or Data Center
