In some instances, applicants are hired externally - these ones did not apply through the career page thus their information is not stored on Workstream. In spite of this, these new hires can still be added to Onboarding.

Follow these steps to add them to Onboarding:

STEP 1: Go to Positions.

STEP 2: If you have multiple brands, select your brand name. Otherwise, proceed to step 3.

STEP 3: Click the arrow down button next to the brand name to select a location.

STEP 4: Go to View Applicants of the position where the new hire was hired for.

STEP 5: Click on Add Applicant.

STEP 6: Enter the new hire's First Name, Last Name, Email, and Phone number.

STEP 7: Make sure to add the new hire first to a hiring stage that does not automatically send a notification to the applicant. You may move them to the Application stage, or any review stage type.

STEP 8: Afterward, move the applicant to the Hiring Complete stage.

The new hire will be automatically marked as Hired and will be moved to Onboarding and will receive an email to begin filling out forms once you select Start Onboarding on your end.
