Onboarding for new starters 

There's no better way to welcome your new starters into the business than with animated onboarding videos.

Also, there's the added bonus of having the videos to refer back to in the future if they forget anything. 

The template shown below is a great one to use as an introduction to the onboarding process. You could link your new starters to a particular webpage or shared drive, or you could add this video to the start of a slideshow presentation. The name of this template is 'Welcome to the team'.
