Onboarding & Orientation¶
During your first few days of employment, you will participate in an orientation program conducted by various members of the team. During this program, you will receive important information regarding the performance requirements of your position, basic X Studios policies, this handbook, your compensation, and benefits programs, plus other information necessary to aquaint you with your job, surroundings, and our campus.
Please use this Orientation Program to familiarize yourself with X Studios and our policies and benefits. We encourage you to ask any questions you may have during this program so that you will understand all the guidelines that affect and govern your employment relationship with us.
During Orientation you will also be asked to complete all necessary paperwork electronically, such as medical benefits plan enrollment forms, and appropriate federal, state, and local tax forms. You will be required to present us with information establishing your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States in accordance with applicable federal law.
X Studios is proud to empower our employees with the information, and power to maintain their own Human Resources connections. Therefore, we partner with an online HRIS dashboard (also known as “The Hub”) powered by BambooHR.
“The Hub” is your one-stop for:
- Paid Time Off (PTO) Balances
- Paid Time Off (PTO) Requests
- Employee Onboarding Files & Paperwork
- Direct Deposit Information
- Payroll/W-2 Information
- Employee Relations
- Employee Satisfaction
- Team Calendar
- Sweet, sweet, employee swag shop
Upon Onboarding, you will be granted access to “The Hub” using your Google Single Sign On (SSO) information. The Hub is located at: https://xstu.io/hr
BambooHR also has a mobile app that allows you to do (most) of your “Hub” needs on the go. Super helpful to request time off, no matter where you are.
Keys to the Kingdom¶
Well, figurative keys, that is. Upon your Onboarding paperwork being submitted, we have an automated system that will work behind the scenes and give you access to all of our systems auto-magically. On your first day, you will be greeted with access to your workspace, as well as access to your company e-mail. One of your first e-mails will contain the “Keys to the Kingdom” subject line. This e-mail will contain an overview of every system you need access for to be successful in your role, as well as some sweet access that all of our X Studios Team has. This includes our internal encrypted password manager, company Slack profile, your phone extension + direct line, and much, much more.
