Succeeding together in
the new normal

There is no doubt that 2020 has been challenging at least. Our daily lives have been turned upside down, seeing some drastic shifts in the way we work, live and travel. But no matter the times, our desire to experience the world remains strong, with travellers continuing to find new ways to safely explore destinations far-off and close to home.

The times have changed, but our core values remain the same. Our company culture and work environment continues to flourish digitally with an array of business updates, well-being programs, hackathons, virtual coffee catch-ups, music streaming events, volunteering initiatives, webinars and more. This new reality has only made our teams closer as we unite to fulfill our mission to make it easier for everyone to experience the world. 

By this time, you’re probably overflowing with questions about how we interview candidates and onboard new colleagues. We hope to address your questions in the following paragraphs, but don’t hesitate to fire off any lingering questions to your recruiter during the interview.

Virtual interview

For most of our offices around the world, interviews take place online. After you’ve applied for a position, one of our recruiters will take your application into consideration and examine if you fit the role.  If there’s a match, we’ll send you an invite to join a video interview where we’ll better get to know each other and learn more about your career goals. Don’t worry, when the time comes, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to set up your online interview.

Relocating

The world has seen some tremendous changes this year, but we’ll continue to relocate our new colleagues to their new homes. If you’ve accepted an offer with a relocation package, our dedicated team of experts will help you move and find your way around the city. Our offices are located in some of the world’s most vibrant welcoming and diverse tech hubs and we’ll do our utmost best to make you feel at home, as quickly as possible.

Virtual onboarding

We’ve continued to hire new colleagues throughout the pandemic but have found an innovative way to onboard them while most offices around the world remain closed. We’ve developed a virtual onboarding process that consists of a virtual onboarding group, online learnings and virtual meetings with your new team. Our dedicated team of onboarding and IT experts will ensure everything is set up properly, so you can focus on what you do best.

Working together

You’ll be virtually meeting, chatting and working together with diverse colleagues from all over the world. Building new friendships becomes a whole new experience as we will provide you with access to some of the world’s most innovative tools for online communication. Whether you’re having a virtual coffee with your manager or presenting your work to teams in Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, New York or Singapore, you’ll easily become a part of the Booking.com family.
