Onboarding Assets

Getting new employees up to speed quickly is a priority for many hiring managers, but it takes work to put together a comprehensive onboarding program. Why reinvent the wheel? We’ve created some materials to help. New Synergy developers can also find tips about where to get started here!

90-Day New Hire Onboarding Plan

Hiring managers can use and edit this template as they see fit. The document covers the first 90 days of a new hire’s employment, plus a few recommendations for the long term. While many Synergy/DE-specific suggestions are detailed, the template also contains suggestions for general onboarding into your specific office culture and processes.

Who is Synergex?

At Synergex, we think of our customers as our partners. Since this type of relationship isn’t common in our industry, we’ve created a document that explains who we are to your new hire. It also shares some background about our products and services. This PDF can stand alone, but we also link to it from our 90-day plan template.

New Developer Quick Start Guide

For new Synergy developers who are wondering where to start, we’ve created a list of topics to brush up on (with links to our documentation) and suggested goals or milestones to shoot for as they begin their Synergy development. Please take your individual development environment into consideration when determining which goals make sense.
