The Importance of Onboarding New Employees

Feb 02, 2022

The onboarding process is very important for several reasons. First, it’s one of the first impressions the company will make on the new hire. 

The systems, processes, how he/she is introduced to the day to day of what he/she will be doing. If the first impression is chaos, confusion, overwhelm, this is how the employee will perceive that the entire company is run. In comparison, if the employee is met with a warm welcome, properly intrude to the processes and systems, and has a chance to experience the culture, he/she will feel better about the decision to join the company. In the long run, this will serve to Limit overwhelm and reinforce the clear expectations and improved retention rates.

In this episode, we will discuss:

  1. Automations 
  2. New hire paperwork
  3. The first day of work
  4. Key employment policies
  5. Follow up
