If you’re used to hosting social events in the office or in person, you might have already moved over to virtual social events now and again – whether that’s online board games or just video chats.
Before the new starter even starts, invite them to any events you have going. It can make them feel like part of the family before they even crack on with any work.
Above all, making your new employee feel welcome, comfortable, and settled is vital for keeping their morale up in this tough time and making them confident that they made a good call joining your team.
Support them as best you can, and you can be sure that they’ll stay with you as long as any other employee!
