During my more than five years here at Avid, it has been both challenging and rewarding to be aligned with a company that consistently moves our candidate experience in the right direction. Our HR department works hard to ensure that all of our candidates and employees have a special experience here.
As a part of our core values, we're an organization that values employees at all levels. Our company has grown at the rate of almost 18-20% over the past few years. It’s been an exciting time to watch the company grow at such a brisk pace.
From the time I first joined, it’s been fulfilling to be a part of the team that helped the company reach many milestones, including opening offices outside of North Carolina: one in Atlanta, GA and another in São Paulo, Brazil. During the past year we have even crossed our 100+ employee mark!
Because of the steady influx of new hires, we've worked to ensure that all of our employees have a wonderful candidate experience beginning with their first contact and continuing throughout the entire hiring process. In this competitive world, which is now a candidate-driven market, we believe that the success of an organization depends on its services, customers, and profitability. And of course this also depends on the mindset and achievements of its current and future employees.
The strength of our recruitment process lies in having a ‘Red Carpet’ mentality, right from the minute our team reaches out to a candidate. This helps to contribute to the best possible ‘Candidate to Hire’ experience.
Some of our key focus areas include:
Once a candidate agrees to join us, their relationship with us begins with a surprise gift mailed to their home. This is followed by the option of having all initial paperwork completed online at their own pace prior to the first day of work. We believe that our new hires should have an enriching first day experience spent enjoying the day and getting to know their colleagues, not filling out forms.
Each new employee is assigned a mentor who helps them to acclimate to our culture. The mentor also connects the new employees to their colleagues across our four offices during their first few months onboard.
New employees also get to know more about us via a fun and informative new hire portal that guides them during the onboarding process. This not only includes what happens inside Avid, with details about our mission and values, but also has information about what fun things there are to do in the area, our employees’ favorite restaurants, and places to hang out after work. The portal also provides answers to any remaining FAQ’s that candidates may have.
We love and value the feedback from our candidates and new hires and want to hear from them. After they join us, we make sure to collect their opinions about what they felt we did well and what we could improve on. It's a nice perk when your own employees can help the organization improve.
Overall, we ensure that our potential employees and candidates enjoy and cherish their experience with us right from the start.
We are currently hiring some excellent talent in automation engineering, information solutions, and other areas. We encourage you to visit our website for more information and apply online. We also encourage you to connect with us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
