Friend: How was your first week?
Me: Great! My laptop and all the relevant necessities were already on my desk when I arrived. The company even provided me with a smaller-sized laptop that is convenient to travel with.
Friend: Wow, that is very accommodating of them.
Me: They also offer a series of cool online courses that are accessible by all employees. The introduction course was perfect for new starters. In it, they discussed everything that a new employee should know – about the company, how to use the HR Information System, laptop tools and apps, and how to set up a meeting using Skype. It’s a highly automated company and I admire that.
Friend: What about your new colleagues?
Me: They have arranged for me to meet various stakeholders so that I have a holistic view of the business. I have met most of them and they are helpful, friendly and willing to share. When they talk about their individual roles and the company itself, I can hear their passion. Their leaders are also forward-thinking, strategic and open.
Friend: Sounds like you’ve hit the jackpot! I can feel your excitement for the company.
