Virgin Trains onboarding: Getting brand buy-in from day one

“Look! I’m starting at Virgin Trains next week and look what they sent me!”

That was the reaction to the digital pre-boarding experience we created for new starters in the week before they joined Virgin Trains.
Virgin Trains onboarding challenge
From day one your new employees need the confidence to handle challenging situations across the rail network. All while working hundreds of miles from their managers. What do you do?

Mind Tools interviewed recent hires and onboarding managers at Virgin Trains to determine what new starters really care about. We created five digital pre-boarding experiences – from animations and arcade games to interactive videos – to address those concerns.

Experience the 5 onboarding resources we created in collaboration with Virgin Trains.
