Most companies that I have worked with have a traditional way of working with new hires. Normally the recruiting department works with the hire first before passing the hire over to the new team or manager.
What happens when the hire is transferred over to the new team or manager? Well not much… and that is the problem: not much happens!
Becoming Part of the Definity First Family
The success of our internal practices over the years has led us to believe that the more bonds we create with our new hires, the better the chances are for them to feel connected and part of our company. If you allow the people to have different channels of communication, one of those ways is more than likely to hit the spot. Then you are in!
Our talent acquisition team does not stop connecting after the hire has been made, we get involved with our new hires by giving them the full welcome. This “onboarding process” can continue even after four to five months! We are deeply invested in our employees’ wellbeing.
Our account managers and technical leaders have a big responsibility staying in touch with everyone in not only professional ways, but personally, as well. We authentically care about people… because at the end of the day, our business is people.
We all feel, we think, we have different opinions and way of sensing and processing information. We are all different and, therefore, need more than one way to interact. One channel of communication might not work in the same way for everyone. The more opportunity for a variety of communication styles, the happier our team will be.
We believe that the role of every worker is to spend as much time as possible getting to know your teammates and working side by side for everyone’s growth. #ThisIsUs This is part of our culture, and this is part of what sets us apart from others .
So no, we do not forget about you after you’ve started working. Come and join our team, send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are waiting for you!
