During check-ins try to be mindful to discuss personal and professional goals, appreciate and recognise any new ideas they may have and give suggestions or encourage those for further learning.
Important Note: The new employee should be comfortable to express their personality and demonstrate how they like to work. Don’t try to force your way of working, be open to change!
Explore a variety of ways to stay connected with your team until you can establish what works best. There are an abundance of video calling platforms, conference call apps and instant messaging options you can use.
Speak with the team and your new starter to gain feedback on how they feel it works best.
