At Surge we opine that the onboarding process starts immediately after the employment contract is signed, i.e. typically 4-6 weeks before the new colleague starts in your company. During these 4-6 weeks, the newly employed colleague shall receive relevant information about his new employer, department, the start-up process, etc. The onboarding process also covers the activities during the first 2 weeks of employment of the new colleague.
