30-60-90 Day Onboarding Plan

A step-by-step plan to onboard new employees successfully in their first months

Before your new hire’s first day

To save time on training and ensure new hires are well-prepared for their new job, complete the following tasks before their start date:

  • Send an agenda for the first day: Provide a clear outline of what new hires can expect on their first day, including any scheduled 1:1 meetings, demonstrations, or training sessions that are relevant to their role.

  • Share manuals and instructions for setting up corporate accounts: Provide detailed guidance on how to set up necessary corporate accounts, such as company email or other relevant systems.

  • Provide a digital copy of the employee handbook: Give new hires access to your employee handbook, allowing them to review it beforehand and come prepared with any questions they may have.

By taking care of these tasks in advance, you can streamline the onboarding process and empower new hires to hit the ground running.
