What happens when a new colleague arrives?
Do you find yourself being asked the same questions every time a new person joins your office? Perhaps you sometimes feel as though there’s a neon sign flashing Ask Me! above your desk? Maybe you’ve begun to wonder if someone in HR has told recent hires that you’re the Newbie Whisperer? That you’re the point person for bringing newcomers up to speed?
Perhaps, you ponder, helping to induct (onboard) newcomers is actually an expectation that’s just not yet been formalized.
You are not alone. Answering questions here and there while helping new colleagues settle in can represent a series of distractions and interruptions to routine. If you’re meeting these needs on a piecemeal basis, your productivity drops. That’s not good for you or for the others you support, and it’s certainly not ideal if new colleagues feel that they’re imposing on your time.
Feb 21/19 webinar presented in conjunction with RHONDA SCHARF and ON THE RIGHT TRACK
Invest In Yourself and In Your Systems
Whether or not you’ve already taken steps to include office onboarding in your job description, the fact is that many assistants provide a guiding hand to a range of newcomers. Given the investments of time and financial resources in recruiting new hires, it makes sense to plan and formalise onboarding processes. You want your new colleagues to feel welcome and well grounded, and that also provides a good return on investments (ROI) of time and expertise.
My February 21/19 webinar, Onboarding: How to Maximize Value for New Colleagues and Your Office, helps you shift from an ad hoc approach to one that maximizes value for everyone involved.
What I’ll Cover in this Webinar
- Adding Value Through Onboarding
- Structuring Your Program

Ideally, you can participate live between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m ET, since I’ll include a Q&A at the end of the webinar. That’s 11:00 a.m on North America’s west coast, or 7:00 p.m. in the UK and 8:00 p.m. in much of Europe. This will be 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday the 22nd for readers in Africa, and 11:00 a.m. on the 22nd for those of you in Australia and New Zealand.
The good news: Even if you’ll be in a meeting or sound asleep in your part of the planet at that time, you’ll have access to a recording of my webinar for 60 days after I’ve presented it.
