The Birkman Method in MailChimp’s Successful Onboarding Process

Making new hires feel like a part of the team can be difficult to navigate, but MailChimp has managed to develop an onboarding process that builds a sense of community, creates effective communication, and helps propel teams towards success. Before employees can begin working, they must participate in a robust welcoming program that pairs new hires with “Chimpanions”, have face-time with co-workers and the executive team, and attend trainings that make them feel welcome and supported from the get-go. MailChimp also leverages personality insights gathered from The Birkman Method to help employees develop self-awareness and understand how they fit into their teams.
