In my book, The Five Firsts: A Simple System to Onboard, Engage & Retain Top Talent, I recommend you have a chat with every new employee at the end of their first week. Here are some additional suggestions as to the kinds of questions you might ask:

  1. Which co-worker has been most helpful to you?
  2. Have you had any uncomfortable situations or conflicts?
  3. Does everyone seem to be on the same page when it comes to what is expected of them in areas like safety, quality of work, and accountability?
  4. What was the best part of your first week here? What could we have done to make it better?
  5. Do you think we asked for too many qualifications for what the job really entails or too few?
Need a great speaker for your next meeting? Give me a call; let’s talk!
