Our Welcome Days at GetYourGuide
How many times have you thought about your first day at a new job? We’ve all felt mixes of anticipation, fear, and excitement about what would happen. Join us and you’ll never forget our ever-popular Welcome Days! But what exactly can you expect?
Every month we have a group of new people, or Newbies, who experience a warm welcome to GetYourGuide.
Based on our clarity and learning values, the Welcome Days start with a tour of presentations, where the Newbies can have a full overview of GetYourGuide’s different departments. It is a great chance to learn about GetYourGuide’s history from our founders and hear about every department’s team, goals and new projects.
The days are not just about getting to know the company internally, there is also always a surprise tour, guide or activity! It helps us stay curious. This month it was a boat tour of Berlin. Cruising down the canals, enjoying the sun, and learning about Berlin’s fascinating history.
At the end of all the presentations and exploring Berlin, our newbies still have one last mission: introducing themselves to the rest of the team. The newbies always find creative ways to show who they are through games, presentations or quizzes at our Friday Update. It’s good fun for all - this month we even had a play!
We’re looking forward to the next welcome days, and to seeing what new talent lies amongst us.
