How to Make New Employees Feel at Home

January 14 2020 - When we hire a new employee, it's in our best interests to make sure they fit into the company as seamlessly as possible. When we hire someone, we want them to stay with us for as long as possible and feel comfortable working in our company. As we all know, first impressions make a big difference so it's important to put effort into making a new employee feel at home.

Of course, there’s a balance to be found, not everybody wants a big fuss to be made when they join a new company, but it is nice to feel like the team is excited to have you on board. So, what can you do to make new employees feel at home in your business?

1. Be Prepared for Their Arrival

It's pretty daunting turning up at your new job and finding out nobody knew you were coming asides from some HR manger hidden in the back office. When a new employee does arrive, make sure everything is prepared for them so they can settle into their job.

Make sure they have a desk ready with everything they need and at the very least, the team members that they are going to be working with are introduced to them. An office tour is always a nice way to start to get new employees more comfortable with their environment.

2. Make Your Offices a Healthy Environment

If you create an enjoyable environment for your employees to work in, it will be so much easier for new employees to feel at home right from the beginning. People are happy when they’re in a healthy environment, and as a new employee, you can quickly pick up on the mood of the other employees.

Focus on making your office a positive, healthy place to work by moving to a private office space in London that offers not only desks, chairs and under-desk lockable pedestals but also wellness packages your employees can take part in. Your new employees will take the cue from other happy employees and enjoy the environment they work in.

3. Encourage Team Building

One of the things that's most likely to decide whether people enjoy their work is the relationships they make in the office. If you love the people you work with, then the chances are, you're going to love your work.

Encouraging regular team building activities is a great way to help employees, and especially new employees build relationships that are going to make them feel more comfortable at work.

4. Open Communication Channels

All problems can be solved through good communication. If you keep communication channels open between all levels of employees, then you can create an environment that makes new employees feel welcome.

Getting feedback after an employee's first day allows you to find out what you're doing right and what you’re doing wrong and make the process better for the next new employee. It might not seem like the biggest thing in the world, but retaining staff is important for any business, and a new employee's first day is the perfect time to start making them feel comfortable in your business.

Successful Onboarding: Strategies to Unlock Hidden Value Within Your Organization

Mark Stein and Lilith Christiansen
  Fact: 1/3rd of all external hires are no longer with the organization after 2 years. What can you do about it? In a word: onboarding; although poorly understood, subject to narrow definitions, and with limited best practice understanding or management rigor. Consultants Mark Stein & Lilith Christiansen have worked with leading companies on it, and they've synthesized their work into a ready to use system.
