New Employee Onboarding


The retention process begins before an employee starts work at your company. Use the following checklists to successfully onboard every employee.

Prior to start checklist
Week 1 checklist


“I had a new employee starting and wanted to make a great first impression. I found the PT WORK Force orientation checklist that provided a list of what needs to be ready on any employee’s first day. When he arrived on his first day, he had access to his computer and email, his workspace was set up and he was introduced to his peer buddy. He said he immediately felt like part of the team.”

“At our manufacturing facility we have a workforce with a lot of knowledge; however, some of them are within the window where they are considering retirement. The ‘Fixing the Skills Gap’ article has provided us with some solid starting points on what initiatives we can pursue internally to ensure that when our employees retire, the knowledge of our facility and product is retained and passed along to the next generation of employees.”
