The finalists for the 2013 Humorous Beginnings Award for Best Onboarding Program are:

Organization: Intel (site)

Submitted by Anon

Intel celebrates their new employees by literally rolling out the red carpet for them. New Hires walk along a red carpet during the first day of orientation that’s lined with photographers taking pictures. They then introduce themselves onstage and get applauded into the company.

Organization: Ritz Carlton (site)

Submitted by Dan The Man

The Ritz Carlton welcomes new employees by showing an inspirational video about Ritz Carlton’s goal of being in the top 1% of the hospitality industry. They also focus on two important messages to the new hires: You are part of a world class organization AND we’re lucky to have you.

Organization: Zappos (site)

Submitted by Zippy

New Zappos employees get quickly ramped up in an intensive five-week training program, during which employees are offered $2,000 to quit if they don’t feel they are a fit for the company. That’s right, new employees are offered money to LEAVE, and yet people still stay to work for Zappos.
