Inside our onboarding program or how we welcome new Liipers

  • Joëlle Mary

Welcome on board! We are happy and thrilled (!) to have you as a Liiper! Our onboarding program starts the day you sign your work contract. This is what you can expect.

Starting at a new company is a huge challenge. We feel you – been there, done that! ;-) That is why we have an onboarding program in place, which makes you feel part of the Liip family from day 1, hopefully. Your recruitment process was a success, let's make your onboarding great too. So let’s jump right in!

Meet your onboarding buddy

Céline, Hendrik, Janina, Stefan... these are four of the almost twenty onboarding buddies at Liip spread over all the six locations. And you will get a buddy too! Your onboarding buddy is your go-to person, your sparring partner for social and cultural aspects at Liip.

They are usually based in the office you are joining, while not part of your work team. Additionally, you get a work buddy for work-related topics who tell you all about the projects you will work on. Responsibility and autonomy are key at Liip. We will support you to find your way and embrace our values.

Your buddies will guide you through the onboarding program. Providing you with an overview of the company, our processes and tools. Together, you will define your trial period goals and regularly meet to reflect and share impressions and feedback.

Last but not least, social gatherings! They are part of the #liipway, and your onboarding buddy aims for making you feel welcome at the (online) apéro, game session or yoga class – if you wish to take part. We are striving for a successful and pleasant integration to Liip for you.

At the end of your three-month trial period, you will be invited to the so-called “trial period meeting”. This is a dedicated time to identify what has been moving you forward, what has been holding you back and what opportunities and challenges might arise. You will self-reflect and get feedback from peers as well as your onboarding buddy. In other words, this is our ritual to finalize the onboarding process and confirm your hiring.

Go with the flow

Everything is organized so that you can “just” surf the wave. Technically speaking, you will get what you need to work, such as a brand-new laptop, an ergonomic desk and chair, a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, etc. All of it is organized on-site or sent to your place (maybe not the desk nor the chair ;-) ) in case you start your onboarding program remotely.

Thanks to a clear and easy to follow checklist (aka your onboarding kanban board), you have an overview of your progress within the onboarding program at any time. Where to get support, how to contribute to the external communication of Liip, how our salary system works, and so much more will be taught to you.

Trainings are part of the program too. Holacracy, Agility and Feedback trainings are on the menu. And you will learn more about your personal education budget.

Take part in the #liipway

All you need is curiosity and enthusiasm. Let yourself be guided, and enjoy the ride! We can only advise you to participate in social and health activities to get a taste of the #liipway, either on-site (as soon as this will be possible again) or online like coffee breaks, game sessions, yoga or boot camp courses, ...and apéros! Our tool meet-a-liiper-with-donut makes meeting new work colleagues from all over Liip, even during remote times, a walk in the park.

Don’t be shy and dare to ask questions (all of them!). How you experience the onboarding program has the utmost importance to us. Please give us your honest feedback, so that we keep on improving it.
