Recipe Overview

On a new hire's first day, there’s not much to do until their laptop is set up and ready to go.

So if there's a delivery delay that keeps a new hire from getting their laptop in time for their first day, it can put a dampener on their manager’s carefully laid out onboarding plans—especially if the employee is remote.

With this Recipe, you’ll be better able to stay ahead of delivery delays, and make alternative arrangements where needed. When a new hire’s device is expected to reach them only after their first day, Rippling will automatically send a notification to the new hire’s manager and the IT team, alerting them of the late delivery.

Want to notify your new hire as well? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
