  • Using MyGlue to Reduce Onboarding Headaches

Onboarding new employees is a lot of work. It just is. But there are ways to reduce the amount of work it takes, and MyGlue can help with that. There’s two key concepts at play here. One is that you can store your SOPs in MyGlue, and the other is that you can use checklists to guide the work.


First, one of the neat features of MyGlue is that it comes with a checklists feature. Checklists are a handy way to make sure everything that needs to be done gets done.

Checklists in MyGlue can be linked up to SOPs – the checklist tells you what to do, and the SOP tells you how to do it. Your IT provider will be using a variation of the MyGlue checklist when they set up the new employee’s workstation, for example.


An SOP document outlines the standard operating procedure for doing something. SOPs ensure that tasks are performed accurately and executed consistently. MyGlue makes it easy to upload your existing library of SOPs, and create new ones. These documents can then be made accessible to your whole team. New hires can use SOPs to master basic tasks, reducing onboarding time. This also means your top people spend less time training.

Password Security

When offboarding, one of the most important aspects of security is to change key passwords that the outgoing person had access to. When this is done, the rest of the team will still be able to easily retrieve all of these passwords, if they are stored in MyGlue. Furthermore, the departing person can have their permissions revoked quickly and easily, to ensure that your data and accounts are secure.

All told, there’s a lot of ways that MyGlue can help make your life easier and more secure, both during the onboarding process, and the offboarding process.

Nobody wants to deal with the onboarding and offboarding headaches. With MyGlue, you don’t have to.
