Buddy System for New Starters
There’s a great opportunity to come alongside and welcome newcomers to the workplace who make contact with the group and start coming along at an early stage. Joining a new organisation can be a daunting and lonely experience, so it can be helpful for one or two people in the group to specifically look out for the new starter for a month or so. This can be really beneficial for the newcomer, and an excellent opportunity to make them feel at home in the group at an early stage. This approach may also sit well with HR as an extension of their induction strategy.
