Eastgate Career #1: What Happens on your First Day at Eastgate Software? 

Starting a new job is always overwhelming. You never know what to expect, how the company culture is, or how welcoming the team will be. At Eastgate Software, we understand that. That’s why we have created a program to make sure that every new employee feels right at home. In this blog, we’ll dive into the process and what you can expect on your first day at ESG. 

What is waiting for you on your 1st day with us? 

 The HR team will be your first point of contact on your first day. They will walk you through the basics, such as how to get your ID badge for the premises and share the company policies. Afterward, they will provide access to your equipment, including your computer, keyboard, mouse and any other necessary resources. 

Following that, you will have a meeting with the HR team to provide the first impression of the company culture and a warm welcome session. During this meeting, they’ll cover vital information, such as employee benefits, HR policies and procedures, leave entitlements and directories, and the company’s expectations regarding your conduct at work. 

Next, you’ll get an office tour, which will help you get familiar with the company’s setup, protocols, and departments. This tour will help you to know where everything is located, such as the kitchen, restrooms, and print stations. 

Afterward, you’ll have the platform exploration phase, during which you’ll discover the different systems and tools that EGSers use. It includes the Base Onboard, which serves as the company’s HR platform, and Microsoft 365, an excellent collaboration tool. They’ll show you the different processes involved in submitting leave requests, attendance records and accessing employee self-service options. 

Besides, there will be an onboarding course on Moodle for you to use at your pace and convenience, where you will have the ability to learn more about the company culture, vision, mission, and business objectives. You’ll also undergo training and knowledge development courses about the company’s policies, core values, vision, mission and a bit of history.  

On your first day, you will be personally welcomed by our team. You’ll be given a package of gifts, which includes a personalized card, a tote bag, a pen and a notebook. These gifts aren’t just a gesture, they’re a reflection of our values. We want you to feel special and valued from day one! 

What do we value and commitment to our newcomers? 

We believe that the first day is just the beginning; our team wants you to feel comfortable, inspired, and supported throughout your time at Eastgate Software. You’ll be assigned to an experienced colleague who will act as your mentor and resource during your onboarding process. They’ll provide guidance and answer any questions you may have throughout the first few weeks, providing you with the necessary support to help you get settled. 

At Eastgate, you’ll quickly realize that we prioritize teamwork, collaboration and open communication. We offer various team-building activities, as well as opportunities for career growth and development. Your manager will discuss your professional goals with you and help you create a plan that aligns with your aspirations. Moreover, we regularly seek feedback from our team, and we actively use it to improve the work environment and company culture. 

In summary, starting a new job can be both exciting and overwhelming. However, at Eastgate, you can rest assured that you will be well taken care of. From the HR team to the platform exploration, ESG has created a full-fledge program to welcome you to their family. This approach not only helps new employees feel more comfortable, but it also ensures that they can quickly dive into the work without worrying about how to navigate the company culture. Don’t hesitate to apply if you want a welcoming environment and a sense of belonging from the very first day!
