Kinder Landing 2.0: To do/read in your first week

Be there or be square

  • At 09:00 AM on your first day

For all your other working days at Kinder, it’s (mostly) up to you! Some people like to come in at 7:30 and leave at 16:00, others rather start at 11:00 and stay at the office until 19:00. It’s all up to you as long as you’re transparent about it and check-in with your teammates first.

What to bring

  • Laptop
  • Lunch (you can also go out to buy something)
  • Headspace for a ton of information

Set up your accounts

  • Slack (Set up yourself and ask Berry for invite) 
  • Trello (only used for holidays, sign up & ask Berry for invite)
  • Create (Ask Berry or Bram)
  • Kinder Web (Ask Berry or Bram) 
  • Google Email, Calendar & Drive (Ask Berry)
  • Clubhouse (Set up yourself and ask Berry for invite)
  • Zeplin (Download yourself but ask Kari for invite)

Introduce yourself

  • In the #general Slack channel

The idea is that your new colleagues get a glimpse of who you are, what you like/dislike, why you’re joining Kinder & what you’re going to do here.

  • Provide some text for the website, we'll make a custom photo later on.

You can find examples here

Write down:

  • 10 things that caught your eye and you thought were special/cool/valuable about Kinder
  • 10 things that you think we should change at Kinder. Be brutally honest. From our communications to the way we organise work and plan parties, etc. Everything is up for discussion, always.

This will help us improve the way we work and what we work on at Kinder! This isn't absolutely necessary to have 10 things, but we normally have a review after 1 month to check in on how things are going. So it's pretty useful to have recorded your thoughts for this conversation. :)
