Optimize Your Onboarding Process With Workflow Automation (+ Free Template!)

Optimize Your Onboarding Process With Workflow Automation headerYou’re an HR department of one (and a bit). You have a PEO (professional employer organization) for support, but basically, it’s just you handling the day-to-day.

The CEO says he needs a new role filled ASAP with a list of qualifications. Filling the role will be a challenge, sure – but it’s not the main problem.

How are you going to get this new hire up-to-speed thoroughly in as short a time as possible when you don’t have any sort of standardized structure for doing that?

Simple: Build one.

How 4 Top Startups are Reinventing Organizational Structure

How 4 Top Startups are Reinventing Organizational Structure header As we’ll see, certain elements which we consider part of the normal workplace are being abandoned by experimenting companies in favor of new models.

The ultimate goal is to make the company more successful.

Here at Process Street, we have our own thoughts on that looming forebearer, hierarchical structure, so we thought we’d check out what the Jones’s are up to. This post will look at the organizational structure of four of the most successful startups out there and why they’ve opted to make the long-established hierarchical structure on its head.

She’s also worked with both enterprise and sovereign governments as a key contributor for notable public projects like DCOM.
