Lucid was named a winner of the first annual BambooHR Hero Awards, which were presented at the BambooHR Summit. The awards program was created to recognize BambooHR customers who have excelled in various HR areas. 

Recipients were recognized for excellence in six different categories: talent acquisition, rewards and recognition, performance management, high-impact HR, culture, and onboarding. Lucid was selected for its exemplary achievements in onboarding.

"We are honored to be a recipient of the BambooHR Hero Award," says Kat Judd, VP of People Operations at Lucid. "We have been working hard to optimize the onboarding experience here at Lucid so that employees feel at home the moment they walk through the door. The program has been completely revamped—we want it to celebrate the talented people joining our team."

Lucid's onboarding focuses on three goals: sharing culture, introducing available resources, and building relationships. Onboarding begins well before an employee's first day and lasts much longer than week one. From the swag box mailed after an employee signs and the pathfinder assigned on their first day to "Breakfast with the Founders" and cultural orientation courses, Lucid's onboarding is designed to help new employees feel welcomed and appreciated from the very beginning.

"We're so impressed with and inspired by our clients' stellar HR teams and their strategic programs," said Ben Peterson, CEO and co-founder of BambooHR. "We see tremendous, positive impacts on their organizations and love recognizing their efforts and outcomes through the BambooHR Hero Awards."

Finalists were selected based on the quality, impact, and results of their programs and were then interviewed by members of the BambooHR Hero Awards Committee. Winners in each category were selected based on the strength of their specific programs and passion for HR. For more information about the awards, visit the BambooHR Hero Awards page.
