Are you struggling to make the onboarding process engaging and welcoming for your new team members? Here are some examples of creative onboarding methods:

Welcome Kit

Make a great first impression by sending a personalized welcome kit to your new hires. Include a welcome letter and an interactive game or quiz that introduces them to the company's culture and values.

Buddy System

Pair new hires with a "buddy" who can show them the ropes and help them feel more comfortable in their new role. This not only helps with onboarding, but also fosters a sense of community within the team.

Culture Immersion

Give your new hires a full day to immerse themselves in the company's culture. From a team lunch to access to your culture guide that highlights the company's values, this is a great way to show your new team members what your company is all about.

One-on-One Coffee Meetings

Set up one-on-one coffee meetings between new hires and various members of the team. This is a great way to introduce them to their colleagues and give them a chance to ask questions about the company and their role.

Personalized Training

Tailor the training program to each individual's needs and preferences. This not only makes the process more engaging, but also ensures that each new hire is set up for success in their new role.

At Wetheloft, we recently doubled the size of our team and used some of these methods to ensure a smooth onboarding process.
By making the process easy and welcoming for our new hires, we were able to set them up for success and foster a positive company culture from day one.
