Virtual Onboarding Recruitment

Imagine recruits from around the globe arriving on a lush campus, walking through the doors of your company/school's Virtual Onboarding Center. A bright, lively, well-designed complex full of displays, interactive games, team calendars, project information, meeting rooms, libraries, auditorium, labs and most importantly, team members and staff.

A small team of recruits discuss and play with models of products floating in the air while another asks HR staff questions about procedures. As recruits explore the Center's interactive games and displays together, they are immersed in your company/school's cultures and values while bonding with their teams. New employees can call your staff on video phones for support. New employees quickly become excited, confident team members and build rapport with team managers. Onboarding has begun?
