Onboarding Buddy for New Hires
Starting a new job is daunting, and the last thing you should experience on your first day is being bombarded with paperwork and information, and having no time to breathe. Having a Buddy Onboarding can help you transition into your new role easily. It can also ensure a great first day experience. Aside from that, your work buddy will help you by:
- Providing a clear point of contact during Pre & Onboarding.
- Ensuring a smoother cultural acclimation process.
- Giving fast access to knowledge about “how do we get things done around here.”
Tom Ramshaw also anticipates how an onboarding buddy will help him navigate the start of a job. “You’re always going to need someone to lean on. Especially in my case: it’s my first job in Denmark. In case I didn’t know where to go, what to do or who to call. It could be a buddy, or someone that has gone through a similar process recently.”
However, from the results of our Pre & Onboarding Survey 2021, only 36% of the respondents were introduced to their Onboarding Buddy before their first day.
