A successful onboarding of new employees is critical to the success of any company. According to recent data, half of all hourly workers leave new jobs in the first four months, and half of senior outside hires fail within 18 months. Your team, even the most seasoned, will fail to deliver due to a poor onboarding process.
It is crucial for your HR department to step up and provide your new hires with everything they need to be able to perform well and be that asset you were looking for. Redbooth can help you with that.
A successful onboarding of a new hire begins before the hiring process and only ends after the first work year is finished. In the meantime, there are several milestones along the way (more frequent in the beginning) where the new hire, HR, and the onboarding mentor need to sync to make sure all parties are doing what is necessary for a smooth onboarding.
Let’s start by creating a new workspace with the Redbooth template HR New Employee Onboarding. The title of your workspace should be the name of the new hire. For further context, add the name of the department he’ll work in, in the workspace title as well. Invite new members so they can participate on his hiring process and overall evolution. The assigned onboarding mentor, team lead and head of department should be there.
Introduce the new hire to all members in the workspace by using the @all mention in workspace chat. This will notify all workspace members of a new chat message.
If the new hire works remotely, attach important documents from SignNow in the task where you need the new hire to sign. The new hire can sign them online.
Meeting the department leads and other key team members will allow the new hire to know who is responsible for what. Create a quick meeting with the Meet Now functionality for a short introduction.
Whenever there’s a task that needs to be updated urgently, you can quickly grab the new hire’s attention by starting a chat and referencing that task.
Archive the workspace when the onboarding process is finished.
