How to Determine What Your Employee's Start Date Can Be

NON-BENEFITED HIRES

For non-benefited hires, if you're trying to determine a start date, please follow these guidelines:

Requisition - allow 3 business days for approvers on chain to review/approve.  Once approved, allow for 1 business day for Staffing Partner to review, post and provide the link to the requisition owners.  Once posted, allow for 1-3 business days for the candidate to apply.  Once candidate has applied, please provide HR 5 business days to complete the necessary steps for hire, which include: (1) Creating the offer and submitting that for review/approvals.  (2) Once approved, extending the offer to the candidate to review/accept electronically.  (3) If required, allowing time for the candidate to provide HR with personal information needed to finalize the hire (SSN, DOB, Gender).  (4) Finally, time to review all necessary information and data is gathered for submitting hire by HR.

Total time from Requisition is estimated at 12 business days.  Total time from Offer Step is estimated at 5 business days.

*If a background check is required, please add an additional 7-10 business days for processing while figuring a start date for a candidate.

**Please note that these are estimate, and may take longer or shorter, depending on circumstances.  We always recommend reaching out to HR as each scenario is different.  We recommend working with your Staffing Partner in a collaborative manner to discuss potential start dates, as there may be some flexibility.

BENEFITED HIRES

For benefited hires, if you're trying to determine a start date, please follow these guidelines:

Requisition - allow 3 business days for approvers on chain to review/approve.  Once approved, allow for 1 business day for Staffing Partner to review, post and provide the link to the requisition owners.  Once posted, allow for 1-3 business days for the candidate to apply.  Once candidate has applied, please provide HR 15 business days to complete the necessary steps for hire, which include: (1) Creating the offer and submitting that for review/approvals.  (2) Once approved, extending the offer to the candidate to review/accept electronically.  (3) If required, allowing time for the candidate to provide HR with personal information needed to finalize the hire (SSN, DOB, Gender).  (4) Allow 7-10 business days for processing while figuring a start date for a candidate. (5) Finally, please allow a little time to review all necessary information and data is gathered for submitting hire by HR.

Total time from Requisition is estimated at 22 business days.  Total time from Offer Step is estimated at 15 business days.

*If a background check happens to NOT be required for your benefited hire, you can safely take off 7-10 business days of processing time.

**Please note that these are estimate, and may take longer or shorter, depending on circumstances.  We always recommend reaching out to HR as each scenario is different.  We recommend working with your Staffing Partner in a collaborative manner to discuss potential start dates, as there may be some flexibility.
