How to join us

Onboarding

Bayer has offered you a job? Congratulations! We look forward to you joining us. While you are waiting for your first day at Bayer, we will be preparing to onboard you because we want you to get off to a good start, settle down quickly and find your way around. We will also provide you with extensive information so you can find out more about the world of Bayer before your first day.

Our Onboarding program is intended to integrate employees smoothly into the organization and to help them become productive as quickly as possible. The process begins before the employee’s first day, featuring the HelloBayer Onboarding Portal and the buddy program to support the employee throughout his or her first months.

Hello Bayer

As soon as we receive your signed employment contract, you will receive access to “Hello Bayer", our official onboarding portal in the internet. Here you can find out everything you need to know about taking up employment with us. General information about Bayer and our sites, valuable checklists for new employees, tips on finding accommodation (e.g. for interns) and information on topics such as the structure of our compensation system, talent management and what we offer to help our employees achieve a good work-life balance – along with useful links and downloads. 

Your first days at Bayer

Your onboarding will continue from your very first day at Bayer - with the support of your manager, HR Business Partner and colleagues. In many departments, that is supplemented by a special buddy program: you will be assigned a more experienced employee to answer questions in the early days and help you find your feet. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with other new employees, gain insights from more experienced colleagues or get to know more about the site where you work - with the support of your new colleagues and on your own initiative.
