Adaptation

First days
in the company

On the first day in P&G Rakona, each new employee completes a series of security and fire protection training sessions, and completes the writing and arranging of all formalities and documents. He also familiarizes himself with future workplaces, supervisors and sponsors.

Every new employee receives the New Employee Manual on the first day of the job, which contains a summary of important information about P&G work, a list of necessary trainings and interesting facts such as a history of the company and the Plant. This manual should help him in the first few days and weeks, and help him to orient himself better in the new environment.

In P&G Prague Head Office, HR Onboarding is being hosted in the first days, where, besides administrative matters, newcomers will also learn about P&G's history, organization, office functions, and many other practical things that will be useful in the early days - like where to go for the best lunch in Karlín 😊. The first couple of weeks are characterized by onboarding from different areas and departments, but you can be sure that right from the first day you will be able to apply your newly acquired knowledge in practice - according to our motto "RESPONSIBILITY FROM THE FIRST DAY".

At P&G we take care the training and learning of each individual very seriously. In addition to the comprehensive list of trainings and practical trainings that each employee has to complete for their role, each newcomer is assigned a "sponsor", a more experienced colleague from his department who will help him in his beginnings. The sponsor is tasked with guiding the new employee through a practical training system, helping him to get started early, and it's his right hand when a newcomer solves any problem.

Already from the first days, the new employee is assigned independent and responsible work that he will perform with the help of the sponsor and other colleagues. The newcommers start working on their projects simultaneously with the onboarding.
