Importance of First Impressions
The initial orientation period is a critical time for a new employee. The experiences they have during this phase can determine how they feel about their position and the company in general. If a new team member starts off with a negative impression of their position or employer, it will be difficult for them to overcome that initial opinion. Workers who are frustrated or disappointed in the reality of their job duties will also quickly lose motivation.
It is important for a company to plan their orientation and employee onboarding strategy carefully, so they can best set new employees up for success. This can also help ensure that new hires receive the critical information and training they need to perform well at their jobs right from the start.
