How it works

Donut helps you create and implement a structured, scalable onboarding process. From making intros to gathering feedback, it’s all automatically delivered through Slack to new hires, managers, and buddies.

Centralize and Streamline

From Google Docs to LMSs to wikis, onboarding touches a lot of business tools. It also requires a lot of cross-team communication and manual follow-ups. Distribute key info from a centralized place, and set managers up for success with 30/60/90-day check-in reminders.

Here's 5 ways you can improve your onboarding now.

Connect and Engage

Forming personal connections is a crucial part of onboarding. Send new hires targeted intros to onboarding buddies, key people on their team, and others in your organization. Include discussion prompts or icebreakers, and get insights on their meetings.

Inform and Educate

Whether it’s company values, various tools, or just the WiFi password, getting up to speed can feel overwhelming to new hires. Stem that fire hose by sending bite-size pieces of wisdom to new hires at just the right time.
