How it works
When you’re a new hire, who you know matters. Donut makes it easy to give new hires a warm welcome by introducing them to onboarding buddies, lunch pals, and other teammates they need to know.
Give New Hires an Onboarding Buddy
Onboarding buddies help new hires acclimate faster, and create an instant sense of belonging.
Introduce Them to Lunch Pals
Expand new hire networks by introducing them to a new pal for lunch during their first day, week, or month.
Set Up a Job Shadow
Job shadowing is hands-on way to get experience in different areas of the company—and teammates love to share their knowledge with new hires.
Facilitate 1:1s with Managers
Managers play an important role in onboarding, too. Prompt new hires to meet their managers for goal-setting sessions, lunch, or a casual meet-and-greet.
“Making connections from Day 1 helps build empathy between the new hire and other teams.”
Culture Amp, People Program Lead
“We want you to know the human parts of the people we have here—not that they're a data scientist, but that they have four kids and play cricket on weekends.”
Slalom, Talent Acquisition Analyst
“Being introduced to a buddy helps guide new hires and avoid common pitfalls.”
