Adjusting the sail on the wind: Imagicle Remote onboarding.
It’s been a big challenge for everyone, but it has also opened many opportunities (we like to always look to the bright side of life).
As Sébastien-Roch Nicolas, known in his adult life as Nicolas Chamfort, once said: “The pessimist complains about the wind, the optimist waits for it to change; the realist adjusts the sails”.
Well, we fixed our sails and bound new tides (it is no coincidence that sailing is an Olympic sport).
The sea connects lands, and Imagicle connects people.
We were already spread worldwide, and we already adopted smart working before the COVID-19 emergency, because we firmly believe in people, their enthusiasm, and their willingness to draw the company path (or routes if we prefer to stay on a boat).
In short, we kept hiring worldwide during the lockdown, expanding our recruitment strategies: we welcomed 12 new colleagues (), and we tried to design a new perspective to manage an important process that involves a person who came for the first time in a company.
First steps into a new job are fragile, and we pay particular attention to this “imprinting”, with targeted paths aimed to discover every part of the company, e-meet managers who are glad to introduce their teams and their best practices and provide all the tools needed to support remote newcomers.
Thanks to the adoption of a learning platform, , we can now upload our content to make the training process faster, smarter, and easier, in addition to all the courses we have access to in order to carry on our philosophy of continuous improvement.
Of course, it hasn’t been easy, but we received a percentage of appreciation of 8.7/10 and 100% of our new peers would recommend joining Imagicle.
This is a good indicator that we are on track, but we are ambitious dreamers. That’s why we created a series of surveys to make sure that the people around us continue to be happy, satisfied, and safe.
