When signing up to become part of our hummel hDC team we have scheduled several onboarding activities to make sure you are well received and introduced to the entire organization and close collaborators. Therefore, we have designed an onboarding process that consists of several elements, giving you a 360-degree perspective of the entire business. Before your first day you will receive an introduction program from your immediate manager. In the program you can see what elements of our business you are going to be introduced to as a start.

At hummel we cherish our community and want to make sure that there is a good karma between our employees. As a result, we have created a program where all new employees are matched up with another, specially elected employee. We call this our Karma Buddy Program. The Karma Buddy will be available to you before your first day and will help you create a social environment in hummel hDC.
