On board straightaway with the Newbies App
The Municipality of Leiden employs some 1,500 employees in a wide range of jobs; around 200 new people are hired every year. And, whether you’re a millennial or a boomer, a newcomer or an old-hand: anyone starting a new job wants things to be explained clearly and to feel that there is someone they can rely on to help out. How do you show people the ropes, even when a pandemic is raging?
Until recently, each team would tackle onboarding in their own way - and results would vary. From now on, the Municipality of Leiden wants all new hires to receive the same, thorough grounding. The municipality also wants them to feel involved and connected to both the organisation and the municipality.
The Municipality of Leiden now uses InLeiden, an onboarding service featuring the Newbies app, to welcome everyone. Programmes like InLeiden connect new employees, motivate them, build their self-confidence and encourage them to be self-reliant. InLeiden is innovative, has a contemporary look and feel and focuses on the culture of both the organisation and the municipality.
