No matter the size of your operation, the office tour is essential to ensure that the new employee knows where to find things and who to go to with certain questions or problems as well as providing a good overview of systems and processes.
Three things to keep in mind as you tour the office with the new employee:
- Make sure new employees have a tour of the office. It’s important for them to get a feel for the agency’s atmosphere, and be able to find their way around.
- As you’re touring the agency, tell new employees about the functions and services provided by the different divisions so they can understand their part in the whole organization.
During the tour, current employees can meet the new employee and help make the new employee feel welcome and part of the team.
