The First 90 Days

Set the stage for your new hire.

The initial 90 days of employment allow time for new employees to learn job responsibilities and adapt to the company’s culture. During this time, employees are continuously assessing whether the company and colleagues are still a good fit.
To retain your new employee, be prepared with introductions, thorough onboarding and training presentations, and ongoing development with a 30, 60, and 90-day plan that sets clear expectations on how to reach their goal.

30-Day Onboarding Plan:

Within the initial 30 days, your employee should experience increased confidence in their role, establishing a consistent work routine. Additionally, they are expected to forge professional relationships with colleagues, gradually assimilating into the team and feeling a sense of belonging.

  • Orientation
    • Welcome and introductions
    • Company overview, mission, and values
    • Introduction to team members and key stakeholders
    • Role Understanding
