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.


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.
