10 Tips For Successfully Onboarding a New Employee

By Mark Wilkinson | May 30, 2017 | Staff Retention

Starting a new job is dead nerve-racking for most people.

That’s why, as managers, it’s our job to make the onboarding process as easy and stress-free as possible for our new team members!

And that means so much more than having your health and safety talk really well rehearsed.

Throughout those first few days, you (or someone you’ve nominated to do so) should be there to help your newbie settle in – and make them feel loved.

Check out our SlideShare below to find out more about improving your onboarding process.

Summary

If you focus on getting your onboarding process right, your new employees will settle in an awful lot quicker and that means that they’ll…

• Be much more likely to get along with others.

• Get stuck into their work much more quickly.

• Genuinely start to care about your company (quicker).

• “Brag” about it to other people (“look what my new company did for me”).

Stick around for longer.

And that’s brilliant for your employer brand, your recruitment efforts and company culture!

Seriously, check out this blog post if you don’t believe me.
