What to Include in an Onboarding Package for New Employees

Setting New Hires up for Success

Many offices run on a “sink or swim” mentality, providing new hires with basic materials on the first day and leaving them to figure out the rest on their own. While the theory behind this may be that the best employees will “swim,” this analogy falters when you consider most employees in this set up have not yet even been taught to tread water in your office. Every workplace has nuances that cannot be understood in the first day, week, or even month. By building an onboarding package for new employees that focuses on the specifics of your company’s procedures and structure, and by understanding that training is a long-term process, you can set your new hire up for a successful future with your company.
