How to Initiate Hire?

This article will explain how to Initiate Hire which will automatically change employee's status from Prehire to Active on effective date.

If you are using Prehire employment status, you will have to manually initiate hire when the employee's start date comes.  You do that by going to their profile, clicking on Actions and finally choosing Initiate Hire.



Once you clicked it, you will get a chance to double check some information such as position, department, division, location, start date and so on. 



Once you click Save, that will automatically change employee's employment status to Active. That will trigger Onboard checklists in case you have them and your newly hired employee will get all of their onboarding tasks automatically.
