When it comes to onboarding and company inductions, I've delivered and experienced a real diversity in how these are delivered in different organisations. Recently, I read about onboarding bootcamps where new starters attended a full week, or longer, for an intensive onboarding experience in order to better acclimatise them to the company's culture and help them to hit the ground running.
There are some really interesting examples of onboarding out there from the likes of Atlassian and Zappos. But I was wondering what everyone else does? Has anyone got any reallly good examples of using bootcamps and what value they brought to business? How long are they and what content do you cover? Does the business value this approach?
It'd be really interesting to hear about great L&D practice going on out there, what best in class looks like and the benefits, and downsides, of this approach.
