Henry Goldbeck of Goldbeck Recruiting was recently featured in a Job 2 Career Blog: “Onboarding Tips Part II: Real World Edition”, where he speaks to how the little things Count when welcoming a new hire on their first day at the job.
Best things to do for new hire on their first day of work?
Discuss the contribution you expect from them and how they can make a positive difference to the company and their co workers. Making a meaningful contribution is the most important contributor to job satisfaction.
Introduce them to everyone, welcome them and let them know that who is available for questions they may have. Go for coffee or lunch with them, mix social chat with professional discussions.
Make the little things easy and welcoming, like office supplies, passwords, contacts, where the best coffee is, social groups they may enjoy etc.
How they are treated will have a major impact on how they treat their co-workers, suppliers and customers.
