We want to make every colleague feel welcome and at home, even before they start their first day. After signing their contract, every new joiner receives a handwritten postcard and a birdhouse to let them know that, no matter where they're coming from, Speakap can be their home away from home. We eat our own dogfood and use Speakap as our main channel of communication, so two weeks before their start date, our new colleague is invited to activate their Speakap account. This gives them the opportunity to become part of Speakap, connect with colleagues, and check out what is going on before they actually start.
On their first day, we welcome our new colleague with a warm gift (a sweater!), we introduce them to all of our colleagues face-to-face and connect them to their assigned ‘team buddy’. The team buddy helps our new colleague settle in. All new joiners are invited to onboarding sessions. These sessions help them step into our culture and become a part of it from the day they start.
Last but not least, all new joiners write introduction posts to put on Speakap on their first day, sharing their hobbies, personal interests and whatever else they feel like sharing. It’s a nice way for everyone in the company to get to know our new colleagues!
