The First Day
Once the right talent for the position is hired, it’s time for the onboarding process to begin. New hires need information, contacts, forms, and guidance — and it’s up to employers to provide these things in a manner that eases stress during a nerve-wracking time.
Using people management solutions that keep all these critical onboarding resources in one place, you can deliver this seamless, engaging experience to every new hire.
With UKG Pro Onboarding, you can offer the best possible onboarding experience for your employees.
Outline all required tasks that should be handled before your new hire's first day in a clear visual timeline
Add dynamic content, such as videos and links, to the new hire's personalized dashboard
Complete, review, and sign required documents electronically
The Benefits Plan
The first day on the job is exciting but stressful. The new hire, manager, and coworkers all have critical roles to play in forging a lasting and engaging relationship.
You want to introduce employees to their mentor(s) and closest colleagues, take care of any remaining basic setup for their workspace and systems, further introduce your internal culture, and set the foundation for career success.
With these critical factors in mind, basic HR administrative tasks should be a cakewalk in comparison. Consider how comprehensive human capital management (HCM) solutions can make the transition easier.
UKG Pro puts key information and tasks for employees in one place, accessible from anywhere, on any device.
UKG Pro important company information and frequent tasks at the fingertips on day one, such as:
Updating personal/contact information
Viewing pay and direct deposit information
Accessing the company and finding key forms
The Performance Review
Benefits enrollment is a critical facet of employee life, affecting well-being both in the office and at home. Especially if family members/dependents need to be covered as well, there’s a lot to consider, from maximum coverage to premiums and health savings accounts.
Offering competitive benefits and creating an enjoyable open enrollment experience for all employees are key to establishing your organization as a standout among the competition. This often-overlooked aspect of your talent strategy is another area in which comprehensive HCM solutions can help.
UKG Pro Benefits offers a simple, easy, and attractive benefits shopping experience for all employees, helping them make informed and confident decisions.
Consider upgrading your benefits enrollment process with:
Effective decision support and clear plan descriptions
Helpful educational tools
Personalized plan recommendations
Robust reporting functionality
The First Direct Report
After an employee hits the ground running, started taking on projects, and delivered results for your organization, the next big milestone is their first performance review. There are many different approaches that your organization might take to performance management, but whether reviews are annual, quarterly, or otherwise, HCM solutions can help.
Performance management doesn’t mean adding stress to your employees’ lives. It’s a valuable tool for every successful business to create a pay-for-performance environment, gathering and offering feedback that helps managers get the best results from their people.
UKG Pro Performance Reviews is a configurable solution, able to support your organization no matter what type of performance review cadence and assessment style you choose.
Improve retention and boost business results by:
Creating competency-based employee development goals
Assessing performance against measurable objectives
Collecting multi-contributor feedback for a full picture of employees performance
An important step in any employee’s career journey is that initial transition into a leadership role. Whether gaining a single direct report or taking command of an entire team, this leap can make or break a career — often within the first 90 days of the new position.
Comprehensive HCM in the cloud can offer new managers a helping hand in a variety of ways. It can act as a powerful resource to help employees to help themselves, a one-stop-shop for administrative tasks, and even a helpful ally to offer leadership guidance.
UKG Pro Leadership Actions provide managers with actionable next steps to engage with their team members.
Leadership Actions can provide best-practice suggestions in 17 different categories, including tenure, growth opportunities, difficult conversations, and more.
Leaders can also receive alerts for prescriptive actions based on upcoming employee events via the UKG Pro mobile app.
The Life Change
The Growing Team
Life comes at us fast — it doesn’t stand still for a career, and savvy companies recognize this fact and make an effort to encourage and sustain work-life negotiation — through which employees have the freedom to intentionally and flexibly negotiate the various roles they play in their lives. Whether it’s a new house, a marriage, a child, a move to a different region or even a different country, your organization should be prepared to keep business running smoothly no matter what events pop up in your people’s lives.
Look for people management platforms that ensure both 24/7 access and mobile app support, empower employees with control over their own data, and put key resources at their fingertips no matter what’s going on in their lives.
UKG Pro helps keep employees and their teams connected no matter where they are. UKG Pro Life Events enables employees to make their own updates to benefits and personal information, without assistance from HR.
From one central location, employees can:
Update address and direct deposit information
Change name/marital status
Add a beneficiary/dependent
Access company resources remotely
As teams grow, so do projects, responsibilities, and administrative tasks. Managers armed with the right tools for success can leverage this additional bandwidth to do more, faster, and better — while those who are unprepared may sink under the weight of complexity that comes with additional headcount.
Incredible advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics technology are enabling managers to automatically obtain more insight into key metrics about their teams than ever before.
Artificial intelligence (AI)-driven analytics within UKG Pro harness the power of big data to provide actionable insight into your teams.

The Family Change
All great stories must come to an end. In the case of a career journey, that means retirement. Effectively preparing for this outcome is an important consideration for any organization, and requires input from the retiree, their team, and the company at large.
