First Week Checklist

Because this is the essential period of adaptation, it is really important to help the new employee and not overwhelm them.

Organize a welcome meeting if possible.
Provide access and inform them where to find company policies.
Check that the employee has had meetings with the department head and all key people to their role.
Check short-term goals have been set.
Check that all equipment and software needs are met.
Instruct the new employee about security and fire measures.
Plan additional training if needed.
Organize and invite the new employee to participate in team-building activities.
Set a one-to-one meeting at the end of the week.
Add a new employee to the birthdays’ list to not miss it.
