Integration for Teamtailor

Effective onboarding of new joiners is crucial for improving retention rates, accelerating time to productivity, increasing employee engagement, strengthening employer brand, and reducing costs. Therefore, it is essential for a company to pay a lot of attention to the onboarding process.

Integrating an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) app like Teamtailor with Zelt can streamline the employee onboarding process and make it more efficient. Teamtailor allows companies to attract the best talent with an easy to build career site, grow the talent pool and manage multiple hiring processes, all in one ATS.

Benefits of integrating Teamtailor and Zelt include:

  • Streamlining the hiring process, making it more efficient.
  • Automating the onboarding process, ensuring that all essential information is collected in time for the employee’s start date.
  • Improving data security by avoiding the use of email to collect confidential information.
  • Reducing administrative burden by automating the onboarding process.

Once the candidate is moved to the “Hired” state in Teamtailor, Zelt will automatically push the new joiner to a fully customised onboarding flow to collect essential information such as tax information, configure access to workplace apps, and collect personal information. This integration ensures that information is collected in a secure and confidential manner, avoiding any security risks.
