Imagine yourself walking into the office on the first day of your very first real full-time job. You are terrified. It is so much you need to learn and you are hoping you won’t make some huge embarrassing mistakes.
Imagine yourself walking into the office on the first day of your new position as Senior Vice-President of a company. You need to "hit the ground running" and aren’t even sure where to find your personal office.
Imagine yourself having accepted a position via phone and e-mail and are now about to start working from your desk in your second bedroom at home. You aren’t even sure how to communicate with anyone - or who to communicate with in this new company where almost everyone works remotely.
Imagine yourself as the HR professional responsible for creating policies and procedures to onboard all these people with different experiences, needs, and wants.
What do they have in common? What are the critical differences you need to take into account in order to make each of them comfortable, as well as make sure they are legally compliant, understand and agree to company policy and procedures, respect and agree to comply with the company culture, and of course have everything they need in order to make them successful in their new jobs.
Some companies have formal New Employee Orientation Programs and we will share some of their ideas as well.
