Philips PPS Americas - HR Administrator Onboarding in Andover, Massachusetts

Your Challenge

The HR Onboarding Specialist acts as a single point of contact for all stakeholders throughout the onboarding process, serving as an end to end liaison. This includes proactive outreach and support for the HRM, HRBP, the hiring manager, the Talent Acquisition community, and the new hire to ensure an efficient and effective onboarding process (e.g. accurate data is collected in all systems, new hire has access to all relevant HR systems at day one, all stakeholders are supported in executing the needed onboarding process steps correctly). Historically this process was owned by different departments but will now be owned only by one new department. You will be reviewing our current multiple processes and combining them into one efficient customer focused process to create an exceptional new hire experience.

Your Responsibilities:

  • Responsible for the timely and correct onboarding of employees - from offer creation to registration of new employees in HRIS and payroll systems.

  • Within the decision matrix takes decisions needed to ensure successful onboarding of new hire. Identifies process problems and escalates to senior members of the team / manager.

  • Will be the main backup for data entry and background check activities.

  • Supports recruiters and other stakeholders by answering or escalating questions.
