Virtual onboarding, tailored to your company
Onboarding before the new employee even sets foot in the workplace? Play It First, our interactive simulation game, makes it easy as pie.
A time-consuming reception procedure
A good onboarding process takes a lot of time. In a traditional setting, right? A virtual onboarding from Play It First saves you time and resources. The new hire goes through an efficient and practical introduction to your company at their own relaxed pace.
Stress on the first day
Even before your new team member takes a step inside, they will know exactly what to expect. This limits stress and frustration on the first day. The outcome? Peace of mind for your entire team.
Onboarding of non-native speakers
Does your sector have lots of different nationalities in the workplace? Play It First is available in more than 20 languages. This ensures everyone gets the same dedicated and pleasant introduction.
Benefits of virtual onboarding
- Make new employees feel at home from day 1.
- Save your HR officer, the new employee and their colleagues valuable time.
- Teach safety rules and procedures more quickly and in a fun way.
- Avoid stress and frustration among both the new colleague and current employees.
Why Play It First?
Play It First in practice
“We noticed that the traditional way of onboarding new employees no longer sufficed. That is why we sought an innovative technology to solve this problem. Play It First to the rescue.”
Why is onboarding important?
An appropriate programme for welcoming new employees immediately translates into benefits in the workplace. Your new employee can get to work more quickly and finds their place in the team more easily. This results in higher efficiency and a stronger group spirit. With less stress for the new hire.
Play It First answers practical questions, such as:
- Can I park easily at the company?
- How do I get inside the building?
- What will my first day at work be like?
Avoid stress among new and existing employees
The first workday at a new company can be a source of stress for many. Even before the official start of their new job, all kinds of questions arise: will parking be easy there, how do I get into the building, what will my first workday look like? The uncertainty may cause agitation. On top of that, the arrival of a new colleague may cause unnecessary stress and frustration among current staff as well. If they notice a new colleague doesn’t know the company processes and is walking around the workplace seemingly lost, this may quickly become a source of tension.
With the virtual onboarding process by Play It First, new employees go through the process via a fun simulation game at their own pace and in their own language as well as in the safety of their own home. This ensures peace of mind among both new and current employees.
There were many things I recognised when I entered production, due to the fact that the photos were taken in 360 degrees. It’s an advantage when you can recognise things; that took away a lot of the stress.

Simulation games for your recruitment
Play It First has a solid foundation for your digital welcome of new employees. This is true whether they join to reinforce your team permanently, or as interim staff, or as working students. You can use the Play It Creator to personalise your learning game, for example, with 360° photos of your workplace. Then you can get started right away. This allows you to combine a complete approach and fast efficiency with maximum recognition.
Interactive HR course
In traditional onboarding, a new employee is handed a mountain of information to absorb. Much of that does not really stick and practical questions get asked later on. An interactive HR course, such as a Play it First game, has proven effectiveness and is guaranteed to be enjoyed.
An onboarding process tailored to your company
Not an impersonal, standardised app, but an interactive game completely tailored to your company! With the Play It Creator, you can conveniently add 360° photos to give your new employee the most realistic picture of their new work environment. Use the platform to build your own training sessions and give new employees a virtual tour of your company!
A virtual welcome for employees, clients and suppliers
Virtually guide clients, contractors, visitors and drivers through the company with the Play It First app as well. You can easily create a customised route for each type of visitor. Simply add items to an existing flow or delete elements if necessary. As a result, every visitor will know exactly what to do when they arrive and valuable time is saved.
Also for customers and suppliers
Play It First goes beyond just your staff. You can also quickly show temps, contractors, visitors, or your suppliers' drivers the way to your company virtually. You can easily create a customised route for each type of visitor by adapting the existing flow. And that saves valuable time for yourself and your visitor.
Swift onboarding without a major time investment
You have probably experienced it yourself. A proper onboarding process can take a lot of time. As an HR officer, you need to make all the preparations before the new employee actually joins the company. And welcoming and showing the new employee around the company on their first workday takes time as well.
With Play It First, we guarantee an efficient virtual onboarding process before the new employee even sets foot in the workplace. Via tablet, telephone, computer or VR application, a new employee can go through the onboarding process from the comfort of their own home. Enabling them to start their first day at work completely prepared. The HR officer and other staff do not lose any valuable time by answering countless questions and can proceed with their productive workday uninterrupted.
