Everyone's experienced it: the dreaded yet joyful first day on the job. You don't know anyone, everything is brand spanking new, and
you're dreadfully nervous. Hopefully, your employer is conscious enough to provide you with a relaxing and comfortable first day. Some
aren't prepared however. They will throw you to the lions the minute you walk in the door. Please don't be one of those employers. Please
heed my words.
Things You'll Need
- A new employee
Everyone's experienced it: the dreaded yet joyful first day on the
job. You don't know anyone, everything is brand spanking new, and
you're dreadfully nervous. Hopefully, your employer is conscious
enough to provide you with a relaxing and comfortable first day. Some
aren't prepared however. They will throw you to the lions the minute
you walk in the door. Please don't be one of those employers. Please
heed my words.
The first thing the employer should do is tell the current employees
that someone new is coming. It's irresponsible to do anything
When the new employee arrives, make sure that they are pleasantly
greeted by the current employees. It also helps to let the current
employees know that the new employee is coming (like stated above).
It is crucial that the employer have a plan for this employee. What I
mean by this is that a lot of times an employer will have no idea what
to do with the new employee. When this happens, the employee is likely
to feel lost and may just bail.
The first day is the best day to give them a tour of the facility,
office, or whatever you do business. It's important that the new
employee has a grasp on what is going on. A tour can accomplish that.
