Do your HR processes look like this?
Bob Bond is joining Son House in a post-sales support role. Bob is based in Boulder, Co. Bob’s on-boarding manager is Susan Jones who is based in Nashville, Tn. On Bob’s first day at 8:30am CMT he and Susan LinkIn and Susan opens her work Instagram feed to Bob so he can visually ID Susan and some of the other members of Susan’s team. Bob similarly shares some photos of him and his family (ones that Susan wasn’t able to see before during the interview phase).
Bob connects his Bank of America Code Halo to Son House’s and all of his ACH details are exposed to Son House. Susan connects Bob to Son House’s Merrill Lynch 401k Halo and the E-Trade share account opened in his name. By opting in to these Halos Bob’s financial details are shared without Bob having to fill in any incremental information.
Meanwhile LinkedIn’s Orgera bolt on app has drawn up an org chart of Son House for Bob and highlighted Son House employees who are in the greater Boulder area. LinkedIn alerts these 17 people to Bob’s arrival on the team. LinkedIn invites Bob to the regular monthly Friday afternoon Boulder Son House team work show and tell/beer bust.
Susan gets Bob to collide his Code Halo with the sales support team’s Code Halo. The 275 folks scattered across the US see Bob’s Code appear; many of them reach out through Chatter to welcome him onboard. Bob’s line manager, Terry Johnson, who is based in Seattle, WA, sets up an Oovoo video call for Bob’s immediate team (healthcare and insurance customers) and Bob gets plugged into the team’s workflow Code Halos.
Susan meanwhile has connected Bob’s Code Halo to facilities management, IT, social media management and fleet management and Bob is close to being set up with all of the physical and digital support he needs to get working.
One of the local Boulder crew notices Bob worked in a local competitor company a couple of years ago and reaches out to Bob for some background on an executive who he is pursuing over a lead currently. Bob knows the executive – they are golf buddies – and Bob creates a three way code collision immediately which generates huge brownie points for Bob amongst the Boulder team.
Bob’s manager starts to wrap up the Oovoo call and wishes everyone on the team, including Bob, good luck with the week’s work. Bob looks down at his phone to check the time and notices it’s already 8:56am. Boy, time flies…
