Improve the "First Day" Experience

How employees are treated on the first day of work (and in the first month) has a significant impact on whether or not they stick around.

Have a list of effective “first day” on-boarding practices for managers to follow. These should include:

  • Having an introductory performance discussion to set expectations,
  • Assigning a mentor, and
  • Showing the new employee the “lay of the land.“

Be sure to train the employee adequately for procedures that are specific to your organization, and make sure that the employee knows he or she can safely ask questions on an ongoing basis.
