If your company wants new staff members to succeed, it’s imperative you have an effective onboarding process. This is easier said than done, as many employers aren’t sure where to start when it comes to training new hires. The good news is, your organization just needs to take a few simple steps to set new hires up for success. Some of the must-dos for your organization include the following.
Giving new hires a tour.
It’s important new staff members know where to go in the office so they don’t spend their time confused or lost. Showing your new employee the ropes will not only give them the ability to handle basic tasks such as finding the restroom or making coffee, but it also gives you a chance to get to know each other and to introduce the employee to others on the team.
Assembling a list of key people to meet.
Meeting new people is a key part of starting off on the right foot at a job. You want your new hire to feel like part of the team, to understand what others in the company do, and to know where to go with questions. Make a list before bringing a new staff member onboard, of everyone that person should meet right away who could potentially help the staff member to do their job well.
Making managers readily available for questions.
You want to ensure anyone you bring on board is comfortable asking questions and is able to get them answered in a timely manner. Make sure managers and co-workers have an open-door policy and are ready and willing to provide help and advice.
Ensuring the new employee has lunch plans.
It may seem like a little thing, but making sure the new staff member isn’t left out of the group for lunch could make a big difference in creating a positive and inclusive company culture.
Providing resources necessary for success.
Your new team member needs training and the proper equipment to hit the ground running. Make sure both are available.
