How to Make an Employee’s First 90 Days Successful

Lou Dubois writes a lengthy article for Inc. about how to pave the way for a new employee’s success. Transitioning to bring aboard new people should be thought of as an opportunity to refresh organizational structure, and it is important to welcome and orient new employees immediately to increase rates of retention in the long run. Introduce them to at least one new contact per day the first week, and invite them to lunch at week’s end to give them an informal way to reflect on everything learned. Give them both short and long-term projects to work on early on, to let them feel like they are really contributing. At 45 days, you should check up on their level of satisfaction, since as high as 20 percent of staff turnover occurs in the first 45 days. By the time 90 days roll around, your employee should feel fully immersed.
