Day One

Simple steps to ensure an employee's satisfaction early include greeting them, physically being there as the boss, and informally introducing them to the internal team, which includes everyone they'll need to work with to be successful. Setting up onboarding conversations to acclimate the employee and make in-person introductions rather than just sharing names and e-mails is vital. The activities you have the employee participating in the first day should follow the job details; so if you're in customer service, get them on the phone with a customer.
