Adding a new team member is exciting — especially if they know how to play foosball! Of course, it’s always nice to say “welcome aboard” by having a team lunch, assigning a mentor, or viewing an orientation video (just like Michael Scott). However, there are some important things that organizations should do before a new employee arrives. Here are 3 key tasks to keep in mind:
1. Create Accounts
Start by creating accounts for email, team collaboration apps, the file hosting service and the password manager. And don’t forget to assign login access to the building, or else your new employee won’t be able to get in!
2. Prepare Workspace
