I am going to give you the basics of a project my school put in place about four years ago. You can modify it to meet your needs.

Project Name: Onboarding for nationwide employees

Departments: Human Resources, IT

Budget: $48,500

At our work, it was planned to make onboarding a priority for new employees. The process would be done online, since many of our workers telecommute. The plan was to set up the system, so new employees could provide their tax information, proof of citizenship, and other legal forms filed. Additionally, the project would include creating a new employee orientation and a handbook that could be saved and printed if the employee wanted to keep it. There was also specific department areas that would eventually be added to the system.

The entire system had to work with the current system and a few legacy programs that were employee databases. The project was to be planned, installed and upgrades done, and implemented within an eight-month period of time. The project costs were not to exceed the budgeted $48,500, as per the IT department estimates.
