twine for Employee Onboarding

Onboarding is about more than filling out forms, signing documents, and watching training videos. It’s about connection.

Small group discussions on learnings

Need to break out into small groups to discuss onboarding material?  Want to match mentors with mentees? Within seconds, twine hosts can set rules that match employees for 1-on-1 or group conversations based on the needs of your meeting.

twine automatically rotates employees for you, guaranteeing uniqueness in matches and cutting back on awkward transition periods between sessions.

Structured discussions

twine’s software comes with tons of built-in conversation prompts (i.e. icebreakers, team building questions, sales kickoffs…) but also makes it easy for hosts to upload their own prompts to a twine session. Employers can design specific questions that help employees review & discuss onboarding content.

Building connection

“Cohort Connection” — that sense of unity that coworkers have during in-person trainings & onboarding — often gets overlooked in remote sessions; twine brings it back.

Saving time

If you’ve ever tried to set up Breakout Rooms in Zoom, you know how time-consuming it can be– particularly if you need certain employees or departments paired with one another.

Breaking up the content

Throw in a quick round-robin twine session between training sessions, where employees can connect with team members and take the same kind of break they would in the office.

Why is connection especially important during the remote onboarding process?
