Hey everyone! At today’s Guru Deep Dive, we talked about streamlining the new hire experience with Guru. Shoutout to our speakers @Vicki Yang , @Renee Osgood , and @Elyssa Lakin  from Bonusly, Ceros, and Guru!


Streamlining the New Hire Experience with Guru

Let’s break down how Guru can help you gain a competitive edge in today’s hiring environment and create an exceptional onboarding experience. 



What type of information should you include in Guru for new hires?

🌟 Onboarding Information

🚨 Team-specific Information

🌲 Reinforced Learning


Best practices:

  • Use Guru Knowledge Triggers to reinforce learning for new hires
  • Leveraging project management tools like Asana,, etc. for onboarding checklists. Spell out your onboarding steps and link folks to specific Guru content at a specific time
  • Create Company-wide collections—go-to destinations for certain types of information (i.e. benefits information)
