Adaptation of employees or onboarding is one of the most underestimated HR processes in companies. Statistics show that good onboarding increases the productivity of new employees by 70%. Therefore, there is no doubt that this process must be organized at a high level.
Let’s highlight the key onboarding tasks in the so-called checklist:
- Record and notify the time and date of the newcomer’s start to work. It is not recommended to choose Monday for the start, because, as a rule, it is a busy day with a lot of tasks, and a beginner can be left without attention.
- Send and fill out all personnel documentation regarding the hiring of an employee in advance so as not to waste extra time on the first working day.
- Send a company-wide welcome email with information about the new employee, including not only his professional interests, but also his hobbies and information he would like to share with colleagues.
- Prepare your workspace, necessary equipment, set up email and create accounts for all important tools and platforms in advance.
- Create a list of meetings/meetings with the new employee
- Make an adaptation and development plan for the next 2-3 months and present it to the newcomer.
- Choose and appoint a mentor
- Create the necessary training/training schedule
- Organize a tour of the office or conduct an online meeting with the team and company culture
- Define and agree on the expectations of the work of the new employee
- Set aside time for adaptation feedback
