In the last couple of issues of Current Searches there have been a few brief messages on reducing employee attrition. I hope they have reinforced what you are already doing.

This week, I would like to address some important things to consider for the successful onboarding of your new employees.

The first impression is generally a lasting one, so please put your best foot forward when bringing new hires on board to ensure a successful experience.


  • Have their job description ready.                           
  • Focus on high-touch personal contact with the new hire.
  • Get new hire paperwork out of the way quickly.
  • Provide a tour of the property.
  • Apprise the team of their arrival ahead of time.
  • Have them meet the team as a group and individually.
  • Assign someone they can shadow for a week, if practical.
  • Ask them for feedback at the end of the day.
  • Thank them via an email or personal note for joining the team.

These are just a few of the many ways to create an environment where the employee feels welcomed into a happy, creative, and productive work environment.

All my best,

Jay Salem
