You've spent a great deal of time and effort to find the right candidate for the open position in your organization. How do you ensure that your new employee starts off on the right foot?
The first few days at a new job can be intimidating and overwhelming. The organization has an important responsibility to both meet the expectations of new hires and to communicate what is expected, how processes work and who can provide information and answer questions.
As a manager, supervisor or HR professional, you are responsible for reflecting on the "human" aspects of orientation, rather than simply outlining the job tasks, processes and procedures that every new hire must learn. Regardless of experience level, all new employees have concerns and reservations when entering a new role, and it's just as important for the organization as it is for the employee that orientation is a positive, productive experience for everyone involved.
