Fun and effective HR onboarding

When a new employee starts at your company, you want to do everything you can to set them up for success. From getting them situated in the office, to helping them get to know everyone on the team – it can be easy to overwhelm new hires with important information.

Welcome Aboard is an onboarding activity that makes it personal, easy, and fun to introduce employees to their new work environment. It combines the ultimate tour of the office with a fun and social orientation. Participants use a scalable smartphone app to complete challenges, meet new people, keep track of their progress, and capture moments from their first few days on the job.

Benefits of Welcome Aboard

  • A fun way for new employees to get to know their colleagues
  • Easy to set up and use for multiple onboarding sessions
  • Gets employees more familiar with their new surroundings
  • Takes burden off managers with large onboarding checklists
  • Helps ensure more consistent onboarding sessions
  • Can span across several timeframes and locations
  • Helps managers identify knowledge and engagement gaps
  • Options available for different sized budgets
Event Overview & Features

Your new recruits will be able to access the Welcome Aboard app right from their smartphones. Working either individually or in small teams, participants will use the app to complete fun challenges, such as:

  • Tough at the Top - What’s the name of the company CEO or President?

  • Go Green - Does your organization recycle? Locate the recycling bin nearest your work area and snap a photo of yourself placing something inside it.

  • Pens, Paper, and Staplers Oh My! - Make a list of the basic office supplies you need to do your job. Then find your department’s office supply area and snap a photo of your supplies all together.

  • Each challenge is worth a certain number of points, depending on how difficult it is to complete. As participants progress, they will move up the live leaderboard, all the while becoming more familiar with your team, culture, and organization.

    Welcome Aboard is flexible, and can be adapted to meet your needs. The activity has no logistical limitations, and you can use it as a tool to make onboarding more consistent whenever someone new joins your team. For an additional investment, our team can also customize the activity with unique and personal details specific to your organization.

    About Your Group

    Welcome Aboard is perfect for new employees who have recently started out at your company. They are unfamiliar with your company culture, team, and office, and would benefit from getting to know their new environment better. They are excited about their new position at your company, and looking to start off on the right foot.
