SAP Onboarding functionality (pre-hire)

Does anyone have any information on SAP's onboarding functionality? This pertains to the time period between when the candidate accepted an offer and their date of hire. Curious to know how SAP will allow these pre-hires to access ESS and complete forms if their BEGDA on INFT0 has not yet been hit.

    Hi

    Create a User group for Applicants and assign roles to that group.

    • We were looking at a custom solution for a similar requirement.

      You can hire the applicant & keep his status as inactive or a custom status, so that payroll will not get affected, then you can create infotypes, & he/she can access the portals, etc.

      Not sure though if this is possible, we are still in the planning process. but you can sure try it.

      Tnx

    There is a delivered ESS service called "My First Days" which is what you're looking for.

    http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_03/helpdata/EN/25/eec64005df0366e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    It's part of Life and Work Events, and is based upon Guided Procedures.

    After we complete our upgrade to ECC 6, we'll be taking a deeper look at it.

      Our process is that we usually run people through a pre-hire action prior to their actual first day of work. SAP has told me that we should be able to provide access prior to their start date until this scenario. I'll know for sure in a few months when we can test it ourselves, but it is supposed to work.

    Hi,

    unfortunately I don't have an answer to your question but was curious about the following.

    If the person is not formally hired (i.e. his contract hasn't started yet) how will he/she access the portal? I guess he/shee still occupies another job with another company so won't have access to your network?

    Wilfred.

    Hi,

    If you are using E-recruiting then you can create activities like medical check up... Onboarding forms, Offer on Hold etc. and mail it across to the candidates.

    And when the candidate arrives you can run the hire to SAP

    Similarly such activities can be created in Recruitment.

    Regards,
