Use email for frequent, short communication. • Don’t send mixed messages • Describe the process and the organization candidly and accurately. • Create a comfortable atmosphere • New Hires who are at ease are more likely to provide the information needed to drive accurate assimilation. • Recognize that small things lead to big impressions. • Be attuned to professional details. • Create your own wish lists for future Onboarding needs 21 Knowledge Infusion Proprietary and Confi9ential, Copyright 2009
