Does anyone have an awesome on-boarding process? I am in the process of updating our and looking for some inspiration.
How do you tackle meeting overload when onboarding new employees?
If you have weekly meetings can they be fortnightly? If they are 1 hour can you make them 30 mins? Those two things cut 75% of meeting time for a start. If you need a meeting you’ll have one. If you have a meeting in the diary that isn’t needed you’ll probably have that also. Do less structured meetings - you’ll be much more productive
I think scheduling/blocking a whole day without any meetings each week for a new hire can help give them time to process what they are learning, prioritize what they know they don’t know yet, and come up with a consolidated list of questions.
Giving a person time to gather their thoughts is a well-appreciated gift, and helps them learn more efficiently.
Hi there, if you’re looking for a technology solution I’ve had recent experience with enboarder and recommend the product highly!
