E signature new starter documents

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for some assistance to try and reduce the amount of paperwork in my department! We are paper based for everything at the moment and use a very poor HR system that doesn't assist me in any way!


I am wanting to put together a proposal to my Director to get a decent HR system in place and am wondering if there is one that links to e signature software for sending out contracts and all other new starter documents.

Who sends out new starter forms currently electronically and how have you found this?


I work in hospitality where a new starter can come and have left again by the time i have had my 3 day weekend so would never have attended the company induction - but naturally i still need them to complete forms so i can pay them and have a record of them!


Thanks in advance for your assistance

  • Hi Emmeline

    We have just got a contract with Docusign, you can build templates which are then emailed to new starters to electronically sign which seems to be working well. I send out the personnel form, bank details form, contract and all our policies. I then store these on our document management solution called MStore which holds all personnel paperwork with a file for each employee. It takes two clicks to do! If you'd like to know more about Mstore I can ask one of the team here to get in contact if you'd like?

    Thanks, Stephanie
