Onboard New Employees

Key Points

  • After finding the right person for a position, an employer should take appropriate steps to ensure the individual has a long future with the organization. That means developing an onboarding process that educates new hires about the business, their position and their role in the overall structure of an organization.
  • Make all necessary arrangements to ensure that a welcoming and structured environment awaits the new employee, such as by announcing the hiring and providing a general description of the individual's background and position.
  • After the first day, employers should nurture the employment relationship and regularly connect with the new employee to find out how he or she is adjusting to the new job and to assist with any questions or issues that may arise.
