Welcome to Oerlikon!
Once the candidate has sent back the signed employment contract, he or she will be entered in the appropriate HR system, and an onboarding program will be initiated. The head of the new employee’s department bears is responsible for integrating the new employee and making sure
that he or she is happy in the new position.
Integrating new employees into our company is a key component of our hiring and selection processes, and generally takes at least three months.
The first day is especially important because that is when you as a new employee will get your first impression of the company’s values. That is why we make sure to plan your first day, and the days that follow, with the utmost care as we guide you through them.
Your supervisor and the human resources department share the responsibility for your onboarding, but your supervisor plays the most important role.
For certain segments and locations, we have a mentoring system. The mentor will guide you through the first steps in getting integrated into the company. He or she will be an employee from your department who is familiar with the company’s environment and location, in-house practices, and written and unwritten rules.
Your feedback and the insights you gain during your onboarding phase are very useful for our work. For that reason, we have a process for officially gathering this kind of feedback and using it to improve our human resources management system.
Performance reviews are an important process that helps us break down our corporate strategy and business objectives into personal goals. To this end, we will meet with you within four to 12 weeks of your first day to agree on your personal targets. This meeting will be followed by regular reviews and feedback on your performance.
This process also applies to changing positions within the company and to promotions whenever it is feasible.
