    Onboard Employees Quickly and Efficiently

    Onboarding software from BirdDogHR helps companies to:

    • Get people on the job fast
    • Retain information for seasonal workers
    • Automate manual processes

    Learn More About Onboarding

    After you find the best candidate to fill your crucial job opening, you want to get them on the job quickly. Even though it’s tempting to send them in to the field immediately, it’s important you take the time to make sure they have all their documentation in place and that they have received all the important information they need to be successful.

    With an effective onboarding process in place before you bring in these new hires, you can ensure that they can get on the job fast and have the knowledge they need to do things the right way – according to your company policies. Simplifying the onboarding process also engages these new employees from the start, ensuring they are immersed in the corporate culture and clear on job duties and expectations instead of being bogged down by monotonous paperwork. By starting strong with an engaging process, you’ll set the stage for employee engagement and productivity.

    In addition to helping you implement an effective onboarding process in your organization, BirdDogHR can show you how to automate your traditionally manual processes. This will help to ease the load on your employees and your busy HR department in those first days of employment. We can also help you retain information for your seasonal workers to eliminate duplicated processes year over year.

    Performance Management and Goal Alignment

    Performance management software from BirdDogHR can:

    • Simplify performance reviews
    • Streamline and document feedback
    • Set goals for personal and company growth

    Learn More About Performance

    Being able to effectively manage performance is crucial in the energy sector. Not only is it important to make sure your employees are doing their jobs correctly, but it’s critical for the safety of everyone on the jobsite and your customers as well. By streamlining the review process, you can quickly and efficiently evaluate your employees’ performance and then follow up with any training or development plans needed.

    Implementing a performance management system will also help you set goals for employees, giving them a clear path on where they are going with the company and what they are working toward. With this knowledge, they become engaged employees and employee engagement builds from there. In addition, it’s important they know the overall organizational goals and how their contributions support the overall goal. By clearly seeing how they are affecting these outcomes, they’ll have even more drive to reach their personal goals.

    BirdDogHR also ensures that your performance management system is easy to navigate. Otherwise you’d be losing valuable time and money as it wouldn’t be used by everyone to its full potential. We know what you need to enable everyone to set their sights on success.

    Learning Management and Employee Development

    With the BirdDogHR LMS, energy companies can easily:

    • Standardize training
    • Focus on safety
    • Train on specific processes

    Learn More About Learning

    A learning management system (LMS) allows you to have all of your training materials, plans, assessments, resources and regulatory documents in one consolidated system. Not only is this a huge time saver, but it ensures that everyone is working off the most up-to-date content and learning in a standardized way.

    An LMS helps you manage your employees’ training and ensure they have the skills they need to do the job effectively and safely. In addition, you’ll be able to offer flexible training opportunities for employees on multiple shifts and/or in multiple locations. Whether it’s role-specific training, company-wide mandatory learning or a new initiative – you will be able to train on your specific business processes quickly and efficiently. Having these processes automated and constantly available saves you the time needed for administrative setup and execution.

    An LMS also allows you to update materials as needed or even create brand new online content and deliver it quickly. Have a safety concern on a new jobsite? Get the information out immediately to your entire workforce and be sure they are protected. Having this information also available via their mobile devices ensures you have their attention at any time on any jobsite.

    Career Planning and Succession Management

    Career planning and succession management software helps to:

    • Prepare for the future and retirement of your talented workforce
    • Enable employees to build a career path in your company
    • Identify who is ready to take the next step

    Learn More About Succession

    Being proactive when it comes to succession planning is one of the most important things you can do to ensure sustained success at your company. It’s a byproduct of having long-term, reliable and productive employees. They get older and will soon exit the workforce, taking valuable years of knowledge and experience along with them. Engaging your younger employees now by creating career paths within your company will help you tap into that knowledge before it heads down the road.

    Having a succession planning process in place will help you identify the superior talent in your organization that you want taking over these critical roles. High potential employees will appreciate the time and attention you are willing to invest in them. They become motivated by seeing that career path for growth and development, and are eager to learn from the best.

    Doing all of this will ensure that, when those positions open up within your company, your project will stay on track by having a highly trained and reliable candidate ready to take over.
