What should an employee onboarding checklist include?
Of course, there’s no “right way“ of doing an employee onboarding checklist. After all, all companies are different and will use a multitude of methods to onboard team members.
However, when it comes to onboarding processes for small businesses in the UK, there are a lot of similar aspects to consider, whether it‘s on a practical or compliance level.
But first, let’s have a look at what the 4 phases of onboarding look like:
Pre-onboarding – preparation before the new hire’s first day
First day – when the new hire starts their job
First month – an important part of the employee’s journey to set them on the course to success
End of probation – crucial to ensure that everything has been successfully achieved and the new hire is on their way to become a high-performing team member
The best way to approach onboarding is by having a separate checklist for each of these phases — so you won't forget anything.
