The onboarding process time schedule includes four dates that represent important events during the new employee's onboarding:

  1. Onboarding Process Start
  2. Contract
  3. First Working Day
  4. Onboarding Process End

  • The four dates each initiate a phase of the onboarding process. They are therefore also referred to as milestones, as a phase transition occurs when a time schedule date is reached.
  • Tasks always have a time reference to one of the four time schedule dates. The task status is determined by how much time is left until the time schedule date is reached.
