Unquestionably, the onboarding prepares the employee's journey in the company. Motivation, productivity, well-being, ﬁdelity: the employee's state of mind is largely impacted by his or her first impression... so we might as well make sure it's a good one! This is precisely the purpose of a "wow" onboarding, which will make an impact and promises a great start!

To give a strong impression, many companies choose to involve the directors in the onboarding of new recruits. There are many things that you could do to do this: at Doctolib, the founders give a welcome speech, at Welcome to the Jungle, they have lunch with the employee on his first day, at Frichti they dedicate a whole morning to the new recruits, a Frichti Morning!
