As unemployment falls and the job market ticks back up, finding talented individuals to fill out your workforce gets harder and harder. On top of that, turnover is at an all-time high, costing businesses millions of dollars. When a skilled worker decides to leave, the arduous recruitment process begins all over again, and no one wants that.
That is why the first couple of months someone works for you are crucial. This is your chance to introduce your company and the surrounding culture and (hopefully) leave a positive first impression. As new team members arrive for their first day on the job, remember that you are still recruiting them long after official paperwork is signed.
