Tips for Making an Employee’s First 90 Days Successful
Before They Start
It's essential to make the new employee feel welcome. Send a note expressing your excitement about the new member of your team. Include the first week's orientation schedule and new hire paperwork. Be sure to involve HR and other team members (this isn't just a responsibility of the manager). Set up the employee's workstation (phone, e-mail, computer, etc.). Getting a head start before the employee is in the office goes a long way to building trust and enthusiasm.
