It’s no news that virtual hiring is now a go-to strategy and not just a pandemic-induced stop-gap solution. But, there continue to be a lot of uncertainties around its efficiency and the ability to select the right candidate. No employer out there wants to hire the wrong candidate or miss out on the right ones as it can prove very costly in more ways than just financial. While a wrong hire can result in productivity and financial loss, a bad candidate experience can harm the company’s reputation and its long-term prospects. Therefore, it is imperative for HR professionals to efficiently manage the hiring process and treat their new employees rightly.
In this blog, we will give you five effective tips that will help you to set a good impression in front of your new employees. Let’s dive in.
Provide Them The Documents Beforehand
Do not wait for your employees to ask for their documents. It’s always best to send their documents even before their joining day. This will show them how punctual you are towards everything.
Now, here are two important letters that should definitely be sent to them on time:
- Offer Letter
- Appointment letter
Just sending them is not enough, HR managers should also use the best appointment letter and offer letter format. Believe us, a good offer letter format can work wonders and make new employees feel connected to the company right from the beginning.
Be Less Strict
When it comes to flexibility, not many companies consider it in favor of strict rules intended to maintain order. But, truth be told, enterprises that adopt flexibility usually enjoy a lot of benefits including cost savings, increased efficiency, and enhanced recruiting as well as retention.
For instance, if one of your candidates couldn’t make it to the interview due to a genuine reason, do not hesitate to give him or her another chance. This will certainly help your candidates to be relaxed and at ease that in turn will favor the whole business in the long run.
Most often, organizations underestimate small yet crucial details while hiring new employees. But it is important to note that HR managers should take the time to treat their new hires as welcomed guests. Only this way new employees will wish to stay longer in a company.
New people can be taken care of in a host of ways such as giving an office tour to them, introducing them to all team members personally, etc. It can be anything but the whole purpose of it should be to make them feel welcome.
Match Their Interests To Their Duties
First thing first, do not overburden new employees with a lot of responsibilities. Give them one or two days to adapt to the workplace and the people.
When it comes to duties, new employees should be assigned some meaningful tasks. Needless to say, no employee lasts long in an organization that does not focus on utilizing and developing his or her passions. Considering the same, HR managers should try to give their new employees interesting as well as motivating tasks. Even they will be acutely thrilled to see their manager encouraging them to work on tasks that they enjoy.
Help Them To Thrive
Once an employee has joined, it is the duty of HR managers and business leaders to offer generous benefits to make sure their new employees have a good work-life balance from day one. Tell them things your company organizes for the personal well-being of its people. Let them know that their company will take various initiatives for them and encourage them to thrive in both personal and professional endeavours. This will eventually make a new employee feel considered from the initial point.
We hope this blog helped you to understand how to welcome a new employee. From using the right offer letter format to helping new employees to thrive, now you have five awesome tricks to make your new hire welcome.
