Individualizing the employee onboarding process

Friday, Aug 21, 2015 11:07

In the past, the only task required for many employees on their first day of work was filling in stacks of HR forms. In modern recruitment, according to Navigos Search, new workers are welcomed into a sophisticated and individualized onboarding process that helps them feel that they are appreciated and that employer are paying attention to their needs.

For example, different individuals prefer different management styles, so remember to ask them how they want to be managed. When you understand what people really want from a manager, you boost your chances of keeping them for longer.

One more note is to keep your new employees aware of their personal goals towards the overall success of the organization. Make sure to spread the message that you value them and their contributions, and that the board is willing to sit with them to go over things.

Your new employee also needs to know how they will be assessed. Explain to them how the appraisal system works to help them avoid wasting time on things that do not matter and focus on what is important.

In a nutshell, individualizing the onboarding process can make new employees feel appreciated. This, when handled with caution, can lead to early productivity, excitement and increased engagement in the work environment.
