It is one of those areas that can cause more headache and aggravation if not handled properly.
Onboarding is not:
Just sending someone a laptop and video to watch are not the answer.
Just having meetings to have them is wasted time, and also counter productive.
Having a new hire to reach out cold turkey to team members for help.
Not setting time aside to get the team together to help improve chemistry.
Things to think about when onboarding:
What is it that you want your new hire to accomplish in the onboarding cycle?
How are you introducing team members and partners to welcome someone in?
What sort of cadences are you putting, or have in place?
How are you building chemistry with teammates?
