Helpful HR Highlights For Employers

A thoughtful employee onboarding plan improves employee engagement, internal communication effectiveness, employee alignment with your company’s objectives and results in strengthening employee retention – a topic that plagues every employer!  Some experts say that employee turnover is reduced up to 20% when employers invest the time resources to develop an effective onboarding/orientation plan.  It’s more about time than $$.

  • Consider a personal welcome from top leadership as well as employee’s supervision and other work colleagues.
  • Consider including an overview of the company’s culture you wish to build and maintain within your organization; what drives behaviors, decision-making and approach to work.
  • Consider reviewing internal resources in place for the employees’ success – health & safety, IT, HR, accounting, etc.
  • Prepare office location, computers, hardware, software in advance of an employee’s first day.
  • Develop and review the orientation and training work plan for the first 90 days; charting the course for the employee’s success.
  • Consider a mentor to pair the new employee with along their initial journey!
