Onboarding best practices for startups: Scale and train your team effectively without the resource constraints

Like any other company, your startup needs to hire and train new employees as it continues to grow. Onboarding is crucial for integrating new employees into your company’s culture and ensuring they have the necessary skills. 

However, startups face some unique challenges when it comes to training. By definition, they are young companies, so they often lack well-established onboarding best practices.
