Did you know that 33% of employees knew whether they would stay at their company long term after being on the job for one week or less; 63% knew within the first month. That’s a pretty stunning statistic, and demonstrates the importance of staying engaged from offer to start date. And the good news is, there are a few things you can do to make sure that those new employees have a great welcoming experience from the start.

In this episode, Angee walks through a few things you can do from offer to start date so that your new employee is excited and ready to hit the ground running.

Many of those things can be simple and very effective. It all starts with a simple phone call to your new hire on the day that they accept the offer. Because often that offer comes from the recruiter. By reaching out with a welcoming and enthusiastic call, you’re showing your new team member how much you value that they said yes to the job.

Some additional things you can do include staying engaged with the candidate before they start, assigning a peer level “buddy” to welcome your new hire, give a tour of the office, answer those questions they may not want to ask you, and more.
