Joining a new company can feel like the first day of school for new employees. They’re nervous, don’t know the Wi-Fi password, and have no idea where the bathroom is. As their employer, it’s your responsibility to make sure that their transitional process, also known as onboarding, is as easy as possible. Continue reading this article…
Bringing a new employee onto your team can feel a lot like leading a freshman orientation. You’ve got to show the new kid the ropes, make them feel part of an amazing group, and get them keen to do their best work. As someone in HR, you have the power to make their transition a little easier— and a lot more fun. How? Start with an onboarding kit.

Think back to the last time you received a postcard. Chances are it was a while ago, and it was from a close friend who’d jet off somewhere fancy in the Mediterranean… let’s be honest it was more gloat-card than postcard. The limited space positively burdens your chosen words with a greater weight, the total opposite of the uniform smatterings of the ‘lmaos’ and ‘rofls’ of today’s texters.
Paulo Magalhães of Portugal set up Postcrossing just under 10 years ago, and it’s gone from strength to strength. In fact, they’ve been going so strong that they’ve just recently surpassed the 30 million-postcard milestone. If you’ve not heard of them, the basic idea is to send cards around the world to random people and get talking; find out about their culture, history and hobbies.
