Finding the right person to take up the post is only the first step to success. The first 90 days are key in determining whether the new employee will acclimate smoothly to a work environment with its own dynamics and procedures. Team onboarding helps the new member and the rest of the team to cultivate a fruitful collaboration. One of the many advantages of a well-structured onboarding programme is that it integrates the employee into a new workplace in a cost-efficient way.
