A welcome packed

A welcome packed

February 3, 2022 Off By Anne McLear

After two hectic days of back-to-back meetings with each member of the senior management team, today I got to have some “free” time to properly go through the welcome pack I received by email on my first one.

It’s a 40-page PDF document with loads of information: about Cablinc, internal procedures, obligations, contacts for help desk, brand guidelines, etc.

I felt there was a lot of outdated and irrelevant information. Besides, the format (a PDF file) seemed pretty inadequate.

Many pages linked to further information on the intranet, but I realised some of those links were broken. One thing the extensive PDF failed to include was the process to feedback on the document itself.

I’m sure there is a better way of onboarding new colleagues, making sure the information given is up to date and (why not?) personalised according to the person’s role.

Enterprise social tools can improve the onboarding experience. Attend Social Now 2022 to see how it can be done.
