Onboarding plan for your Newcommers

Before newcommers first day

  • The best choice for the first working day is the first day of the week.
  • Create the corporate email for the new employee.
  • Create all other accounts (Slack, GitHub, etc.).
  • Prepare the workplace (laptop, monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.).
  • Prepare the access to the office.
  • Send invites to the necessary systems.
  • Schedule the meetings for the first week.
  • Prepare goals and KPIs for the first month.
  • Create an onboarding plan.
  • Prepare video records (Product Overview, Codebase Overview, etc.). - this will help to avoid unforeseen matters, situations on the day of onboarding on your part - the new employee will know what to do at any time.
  • Prepare all the technologies / approached documentation that might be new or important to the employee.
