Tactics to Make Onboarding New Employees a Huge Success
Posted by Insightlink on 05/19/15
You put so much effort into recruiting top talent but do you keep the momentum going after that talent signs on with you? Too often, managers place so much emphasis on recruiting, they neglect to make sure that they make a good first impression starting with their new employees’ onboarding and their first day on the job. You only get one chance to make a first impression yet many managers fail to make it as good an impression as it needs to be.
According to SHRM Foundation:
Connecting with new hires and making a meaningful first impression is vital if you want that relationship to thrive.
Beginning with day one, new hires should be connecting with their fellow employees and learning day-to-day procedures and learning the most important things they want to know.
Here are three great ways to make your onboarding process a great success:
Be a good manager
Just make sure you are going above and beyond to make them feel welcome. If they are sitting by themselves filling out paperwork you cannot expect them to stick around if that is the best welcome and first impression you have to offer.
And don’t be left wondering how your newest employees really feel about their new role. Ask them using an Onboarding survey. Our InsightONBOARD new hire survey system was designed to give you the insight you need to know if you have made a good first impression. It also lets you know how well the job matches your new hire’s expectations. It can also reveal weaknesses in your recruiting process.
