Onboarding New Hires

Published Friday, June 10, 2011 1:40 PM

You've found the perfect candidate for that vacant position. Now what? Successfully onboarding new hires is as crucial as selecting the right candidate.

Hit the ground running with our round-up of advice from across the web.

Start Early

Onboarding begins before the offer letter even goes out according to the HBR post Get Immediate Value From Your New Hires. Hiring managers need to spell out company culture and the org chart during the hiring process. The greater the transparency during the interview process, the swifter the transition once aboard. Also, managers can shorten the learning curve by explaining the nuances of the "shadow" org chart such as what interpersonal dynamics are at play and who the key stakeholders are in each department or project.

Take Time to Make Time

Forget the sink or swim method and carve out time to help give a new hire their sea legs says The 10 Commandments of Employee Onboarding.  Other tips include scheduling plenty of time during the early days and weeks to help new hires navigate their roles and following up with 90-day check-ins.

Details, Details

Be sure not to neglect the details while mapping out the "big picture" for new hires. The little things speak volumes and having all paperwork, email and phones at the ready ensures your new hire feels welcome. For an onboarding checklist, read How to Build an Onboarding Plan for a New Hire.
