First impressions count. So here's a handy checklist for line managers onboarding new employees.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development estimates 22% of new recruits leave companies within the ﬁrst six months.
For the ones that stay, it takes at least that much time for a structured, effective onboarding process to turn them from nervous newbie to top-performing team player.
This simple checklist includes:
- FIRST DAY: Introduction and orientation
- FIRST WEEK: Settling in
- FIRST MONTH: Refine and review
- THIRD MONTH: Reward and recognise
- SIX MONTHS: Look to the future
