The Best Online Experiences for New Joiners & Company Inductions

Whether you’ve got new joiners or graduate intakes, it’s always great to virtually hang out with the friendly faces behind our new WFH laptop screens. Online experiences are a great way for new colleagues to feel a part of the team, especially if you haven’t got your usual office set-up.

When we did a survey in June, 89% of our members said they missed the social interactions and events that came as a perk for work. These online experiences are a great way to increase the engagement and motivation of new teams and bring a little bit of normality back to work life.

We’ve got a wonderful array of virtual workshops and experiences for you and your team to relax and enjoy (and finally talk about something that’s not work-related…)
