How do you welcome new colleagues?

Having a good procedure for welcoming new employees is so much more than a joint lunch and a PowerPoint presentation of your company's vision. The onboarding process can actually start from the moment the employment contract is signed, and this way your new colleague will feel both prepared and taken care of long before the first day of work.

A modern onboarding solution prepares your new colleague for a career with you by answering all their questions, such as: when and where should I show up? Will I have a mentor, and if so, who will it be? Who can I ask practical questions? Where can I pick up my computer, and will I get a new cell phone? Do I have to buy it myself and get a refund, or will I be given one when I arrive at work? And what about this SIM card?

In addition, you can plan for the first working day by arranging meetings, recommending which people your new colleague should talk to and ordering all relevant equipment. You also give your new colleague access to participate in various courses, and to read up on what you think is necessary to get as good a start as possible.

Sounds good, doesn't it?
