Onboarding

Onboarding is more than an introduction programme and checklists. Onboarding fundamentally concerns making sure that the new employee gets off to the best possible start in his/her new job. This may sound simple, but requires careful consideration by both colleagues and manager. 

Some of the questions you can ask yourself as a manager are:

  • How can we ensure that the new employee quickly understands the workplace culture?
  • How can we ensure that the new employee achieves a good relationship with his/her new colleagues and management?
  • How can we ensure that the requirements set up matches the ambitions, expectations and skills of the new employee?

It is therefore important that the onboarding is based on the new employee’s needs and not only what the department/unit wishes to present.
