6 Key Things for Onboarding a New Employee

Updated: Jul 1, 2022

Owning a business is about profit maximisation, and a huge part of that is procedure development. I think most healthcare practices have a contract that they get new employees to sign, together with a Job Description Document.

Onboarding of staff is critical for the culture and happiness of the entire office. It is also an imperative part of reducing business expenses. The cost of onboarding a new employee and having them leave can be a tremendous cost to a practice.

You will need:

1. A contract - so the employee knows their terms of employment.

2. A Job Description Document - so the employee knows what their role within the practice is.

3. An Employee Handbook or Staff Code of Conduct - these are key policies and procedures that are set within the practice and signed by the employee.

4. A health declaration, which details emergency contacts and such with immunisations required for your industry. (Some software programs have this as part of the onboarding process.)

5. An Induction Document - this assists to introduce the new employee to the practice, where things are, who everyone is and identify training needs.

6. A diarised system for follow-up from the induction with a checklist.

If you need assistance with any of this documentation, I can coach and mentor your Practice Manager, or Principal Owner as well as refer you to my network if required. I have done this countless times and can adapt these systems to the needs of your practice.
