Although, of course, hiring has slowed, clients that can are still onboarding new hires and have shared some top tips with us:
It takes the whole team to onboard someone, you must allocate time with everyone to bring someone up to speed with the company context. Managers cannot do this alone. Use training sessions as a group to acclimatise new joiners with processes, tools and systems.
Assign a buddy from the team with a regular and structured format of catch-ups to help navigate their new organisation.
Focus on wellbeing – make sure you understand the situation of each individual to ensure their needs can be anticipated.
Be kind – everyone is in shock and feeling the anxiety of the situation. Human connection is more important than ever
