During the Orientation and Review (O & R) Period, you will also be onboarding your new staff member, as you observe their performance for the purposes of determining the right match. Onboarding is the orientation and integration of your new employee into your department. It provides your new employee with an overview of your department and the resources and tools needed to excel at their job. These guidelines will help your new employee feel welcomed, engaged and prepared. It also helps to shorten your new employee’s time to achieving productivity.
For more information about the onboarding process, please see the FAS Onboarding Toolkit, which includes a New Employee Onboarding Checklist, an Onboarding Workflow Diagram, and a New Employee Welcome Letter Template.
