Your guide to a successful onboarding for new employees

The first few days in a new job can be challenging for anyone, but they don’t have to be. To make sure your new hire feels right at home they need to have the right tools. That’s where the onboarding process comes in. 

The onboarding process is a crucial time that can either make or break those initial days with the company and the team. With the help of their manager, new employees can start building relationships, understand team dynamics, and feel a part of the organization.

This guide provides the steps to create a smooth onboarding experience for yourself and your new hires. 


Key highlights from the guide:

  1. Begin before day one to make sure you’re clear on all the processes with the various departments before your new hire starts so their first day goes as smooth as possible. 
  2. Make things as structured as possible with regular check-in meetings and scheduled trainings. 
  3. Set standards and expectations as clearly as possible to ensure success and productivity. 
  4. Check in, not check up, to discuss tasks and provide support if needed.
