Employee Onboarding Workflow (UML Activity Diagram)
In this example, we've created a UML activity diagram for employee onboarding that includes three swimlanes representing the HR, IT, and management teams. The diagram includes a series of actions and decision points that outline the steps in the onboarding process.
The HR team is responsible for sending new hire paperwork to the employee and reviewing the completed paperwork. If the paperwork is incomplete, the HR team requests missing information from the employee. If the paperwork is complete, the HR team schedules an orientation and onboarding session.
The IT team is responsible for setting up the employee's email and computer access and providing the necessary software and equipment. The IT team also has a decision point to determine if the employee has requested additional equipment. If so, the team orders the equipment and confirms receipt. If no additional equipment is needed, the process moves directly to the next action.
The management team is responsible for scheduling a one-on-one meeting with the employee, reviewing job responsibilities and expectations, and introducing the employee to the team. The manager also has a decision point to handle any questions the employee may have. If there are questions, the team answers them before completing the onboarding session.
By creating and following the workflow diagram, organizations can ensure that new hires are properly onboarded and integrated into the team. By identifying areas for improvement and streamlining the process, organizations can make the onboarding experience more efficient and effective for both new hires and existing employees.
