Learn more about CivicActions
Welcome aboard! As part of the new employee onboarding process, we created an onboarding schedule to assist you through navigating CivicActions as a new team member. You will meet with an onboarding lead for one and a half hours each day for two consecutive days, and then have follow-up self-guided readings and tasks to help you orient. You will also be paired up with your CivicActions manager (most often in your domain area) to support you and help you learn about our working practices, our primary tools and how we use them. You will also attend a few focused trainings around accessibility, agile methodology, security, and company culture. In addition, your project may have additional project-specific onboarding, security trainings, and background checks to complete before starting on the project.
