5. Manage managers
It is extremely important to keep an eye on your management as nothing can fire up or deflate a new employee faster than their direct supervisor. There is no point in creating a fun and collaborative environment for your workers if your managers are not managed. Of course, some managers can do an excellent job naturally, but all levels of management must be controlled and monitored. One of most important parts of onboarding is making your staff and management feel valued for their contributions. So, if there is a suggestion of an obstacle – be prepared to investigate the issue and then to take a decisive action if needed.
6. Schedule check in meetings
Most of the time the check in meeting is scheduled at the end of the first week in hope that the new employee is fully settled in. This meeting will rarely expose any internal or external issues that might bother your employee. It actually takes around a month for your new employees to properly settle into their new role, to get to know all team members and to master the technology. We would strongly advise you to schedule in another check in meeting at the end of the month. You will then able to discuss in detail any issues and concerns. You should also be able to receive any positive and negative feedback. If you are hiring an employee for the first time, click here to get some vital information from www.gov.uk site.
