Helping New Employees Adapt to Their Work Environment

Updated on April 20, 2020

Helping new employees adapt to their work environment

Simply put, onboarding can be interpreted as a process for adjusting new employees to the company where they work.

This will make new employees feel comfortable when working, and feel at home working. Doing this will help the employee’s confidence at work.

This method can be done by touring around the company and introducing existing areas within the company.

Introducing Job Description
Introducing a job description to a new employee does not mean he or she is given heaps of burdens.

For new employees, try to be introduced with clear and light work descriptions, because if from the beginning he feels stressed, it can make employees stop working.

How to do a quality onboarding process?
Want to know how to do a quality onboarding process so that employees are more happy and excited? Come on, do a few ways below!

Create an Interactive Process
One way is to formally gather during morning gatherings (if any) and give other employees the opportunity to ask simple questions to this new employee.

This can be ice breaking for the start so that new employees will not be awkward when talking to their colleagues later.

Company Tour
You can ask an experienced employee to invite new employees to walk around the room and introduce the existing divisions.

The goal is to show the new employee the faces that he will work with in the future so he can get to know each of them.

The first step that can be done is to say hello, greetings, and shake hands so that they are more familiar and quick to get to know one another.

Give a Brief Explanation About the Company
Surely every employee must understand what kind of company he works for, including new employees about what the company is engaged in, what its vision and mission is, and what conditions of work environment it will face.

From here it is hoped that this new employee can better prepare himself and not be surprised when there are jobs that turn out to be beyond his expectations.

You can also provide opportunities to ask questions about anything that is not understood.

Take part in Little Talks
In order to get closer, you can invite new employees to have lunch together and chat with other employees.

That way, the employee can establish familiarity with their seniors to get used to and get to know each other better.

Give Workload that is not too heavy
What if on the first day you got a pile of work? It must have been limp first, right? Well, because of that to make a new employee familiar with his work, give him an assignment but with a light weight that he can finish quickly.

If you give a heavy workload in the beginning, this can make him feel stressed and burdened.

By completing his work quickly, this can be a good start to inspire his enthusiasm to work in your company.

If there is absolutely no quality onboarding carried out by the company to new employees, then it could have an even worse impact on the company.

Employees can find it increasingly difficult to adapt to the new work environment and do not understand the company’s goals or vision and mission.
