Fresh Faces

Being the “new kid” is always hard, even when you’re a grown-up. When your company makes a new hire, there are a few things you can do to make your new

employee feel welcome and integrate faster into the company culture.

It’s the Little Things

You’ve heard the phrase “Don’t sweat the small stuff,” but in this case, it actually is the small things that need your attention. Where’s the coffeemaker and what’s the coffee protocol? How do you use the phone system? Where are the quick lunch locations closest to you? These kinds of things are more helpful than you think to make a new employee feel completely acclimated to their new space.

Show, Don’t Tell

There is already so much to learn when a new face joins the team. Running down a list of things to know is often too much information in the abstract. When you physically/visually show them what you’re talking about, they can make the kind of connection in their brains that works for the way they think and remember.

The Buddy System

Giving a new employee a work buddy or partner will allow them to feel comfortable asking the “stupid” questions to someone other than the boss. Nobody wants to look like an idiot for asking things like “where do I find a pen?”

Shower Them with Swag

Branded gear is the best welcome gift for new employees. Whatever you can fit in the budget to give to a new team member is a must. Even if it is just a pen, the branded gear is like being given ownership.
