Get on the Same Page Quickly with New Employees

When meeting new employees—whether they’re new hires or you’re a new manager—you should get to know them as quickly as you can. Don’t rush things, but sit down with them one by one for a conversation. Here’s what to talk about:

  • Ask them to describe their job or role as they see it.
  • Ask what they enjoy most about their work and what they don’t like.
  • Ask about their personal/career goals.
  • Ask how you can help them perform their job better.
  • Ask what their expectations of you are, and explain your own expectations of them.

You might want to exchange some personal information about each other, as long as the chat stays on workplace-appropriate subjects. You’ll save time and avoid misunderstandings on both sides.
