What is onboarding?

Onboarding refers to the process of introducing new employees to the company. A good onboarding provides new employees with all the information they need to succeed at your organisation and feel comfortable doing so.

“The best compliment I got is when one new hire said that Wortell not only welcomes new employees with a warm bath, but also adds a bottle of champagne, luscious bath foam and great background music. Which Appical being the champagne in this case.”
