Ensuring new team members join for success
Global Textware is an all-round translation agency with close ties to the technical industry, offering complete, clear translations in a variety of languages. Part of their strategy is to ensure that new talent becomes part of their team from day 1. Active Onboarding provides Global Textware with a structured approach to activate new talent and get control right from their first day.
Global Textware has a steady inflow of new colleagues, mostly young, junior employees with limited experience. The existing onboarding program consisted of a lot of reading documentation and hands-on explanation and receiving coaching on practical matters. New colleagues considered the program boring and not interactive, whereas the experienced employees, the coaches, said it was time-consuming to onboard new colleagues. The onboarding process also differed greatly, depending on who was coaching the new colleague.
