What was Allianz Trade’s onboarding challenge?
With more than 1700 employees in 15+ countries and still growing, Allianz Trade Northern-Europe started developing a harmonized onboarding strategy across their dispersed regions. Their goal was to guide every new employee with an easier transition into the organisation and to have the same look and feel everywhere, regardless of any local differences or mandatory rules.
To fit their new onboarding strategy, Allianz Trade Northern-Europe was looking for one consistent and efficient approach for onboarding through one platform as Northern-Europe has the challenge of onboarding yearly +/-300 new employees. After an extensive research trajectory and comparing various options, they chose to work with Appical.
How does Allianz Trade’s onboarding program look like now?
Serhat Kakçi, Senior Regional HR-Controlling & HRIS took on the job of Project Manager Onboarding. He started ‘small’ with creating an onboarding roadmap for the two countries within the Northern European region. Besides providing company-wide information, he collaborated with all local HR departments across Northern Europe to gather relevant local information for new hires. Allianz Trade’s onboarding process is structured around three phases:
- The first day, first week & month
- The first three months
