5 Things To Do When Your New Employee Starts Their New Job
If you are the manager of a company or business, you’re probably familiar with the process of intentionally training new employees. You notice that new employees tend to get very little training and are generally thrown to the wolves to sink or swim in the workplace. Although this may be an effective strategy in the short term, it is a very poor strategy for their long term performance.
New hires can be exciting, but they can also be scary. It’s a big risk to take on someone new who you have never worked with before.
It’s even more of a risk if you are a small business or a startup. You have to make sure that you will be able to give them the tools they need to succeed at their new job.
You have to make sure that they feel welcome and that they will be accepted and wanted by the rest of the employees.
Here are 5 things you need to do where your new employee starts their new job.
- First, you need to make sure that they have a work space that is extremely clean and comfortable for them to work in.
- Second, you need to provide them the tools they need to do their job such as a computer and a chair.
- Third, you need to introduce them to the staff so they get to know them.
- Fourth, you need to give them a timeline and a checklist of things they need to get done.
- Fifth, you should provide them with any additional information they need, such as office policies and meeting schedules.
