Streamline your employee onboarding
Congratulations. You’ve finally found the right candidate for the position. Although finding, interviewing, and negotiating terms seemed to be the hard part—that’s only half of it. Now that you’ve found your top-notch talent, it’s important to set them up for success so that they’ll want to stay with your company for the long haul.
Make them feel welcome from the beginning
There’s no second impression when it comes to onboarding. New hires shouldn’t be made to feel like they’re just another task on your onboarding to-do list. One way to make them feel welcome is to personalize your onboarding tools and interactions. Another way is to provide guides and how-tos for any and all administrative duties, including filling out W2’s, background checks, and direct deposit information.
Set the bar
Be clear about their role, responsibilities, and expectations, but give them centralized access to resources that help set them up for success. By giving them easy access to learning and development tools and establishing consistent check-ins, you can give your new hires what they need to succeed.
Help them network
It’s up to you to play host and introduce your new hire to appropriate team members, departments, and whoever they need to know. Make sure this info is detailed but easy to understand. Other things you can add are maps, transportation options, and access to company calendars.
Explore the costs of implementing onboarding software
There are ways to save on onboarding software without sacrificing the experience for new employees. Most cloud vendors provide a free trial, or a monthly fee. Modular apps that easily integrate with the legacy HR legacy software you have in place are the most cost-effective option.
