Onboarding is not a One Way Street

November 08, 2020 | 4 min read

Onboarding can be a very hectic and stressful time when you are starting a new job. New coworkers to meet, new codebases to learn, new languages to learn, new technologies, new processes, and the list can go on and on. Good onboarding materials and processes can go a long way when you're first starting out. However, it shouldn't just be a one way street where the company gives to you and you don't give back anything in return. Onboarding should be a collaborative and incremental process that every new hire actively contributes to. Things change from new hire(or onboarding class in larger companies) to new hire, especially in a fast moving startup. It is therefore not only up to the existing members but also the new hires to contribute to the onboarding experience and make it better over time.
