Halfway between intensive work and the integration weekend, corporate onboarding makes it easier for the employee to assume his or her position while creating a ground suitable for social relations. The focus is on mutual aid and teamwork to bring employees together around the corporate culture... always with a dose of good humor!
- Promote team spirit and social connections
- Improve employee retention and increase commitment
- Reinforce the feeling of being part of the company
Before the arrival
Encourage the team to connect on LinkedIn with the new member
Order business cards for the new employee
Organize integration sessions with the new employees
Organize meetings between the newcomers
Announce the arrival of the employee on social networks
Set up a one-year training program
An outfit with the company colors (sweatshirt, cap, backpack, etc) gives the feeling of being part of a real team, like in sports, and reinforces the feeling of being part of the company!
At Pinterest, teamwork is emphasized all along the onboarding process: group breakfasts, small talks with the founders, team workshops etc. Everything is done to learn and (re)discover the corporate culture together. During the week, we also take the time to discuss, debate and fix the world, while making sure to bring together participants from all walks of life. In short, the human aspect is an important part of the onboarding and that's good!
