How to onboard your Managers 

It is a key success factor for your company-wide roll-out that you introduce, envolve and engage your local managers in your platform before you onboard all your employees.

Here are some steps that we recommend you to follow to ensure a succesful onboarding of your Managers:

1. Create a "Group" for your your Managers

Groups are one of the most popular tools in Ziik for a very good reason. It is familiar and a highly efficient way to communicate, share information and stay in loop.

2. Create a "Direct Messaging" channel for your Managers

The integrated chat is a brilliant tool for instans one-to-one or group messaging.

3. Create some examples of relevant content

Some of your managers may need to be envolved in creating and importing content in your platform. However, we recommend that you create and import some content for your managers that is available when they arrive.

  • FAQs - Create a few FAQs for your Managers
  • Events - Register some upcoming events for your managers. Include a meeting date and time for a common introduction to your platform and ask them to confirm participation (feature in Events).
  • Documents - Create some folders and import some dokuments that you share with your Managers
  • Quicklinks - Set-up a couple of useful quiclinks for your Managers 

4. Prepare some welcome posts to your managers

Prepare some welcome posts for your Managers so they have someting to respons to when they join.

  • Create a welcome post and share with your managers - Don't miss the opportunity to make it as a video and ask them to confirm that they have seen it (activate read control on the post). Ask them to download and test communicating from the App.
  •  Create a post in your Management Group 
  • Send your managers a direct message, add an image, and ask them a question.
