- Start early. Onboarding starts with hiring. During interviews, expose all candidates to the organization's culture. Don't oversell your company; be honest about who you are and how you work.
- Introduce him to the right people. Identify key stakeholders that your new hire needs to know. Broker early introductions so that he can begin building relationships right away.
- Get him working. This shouldn't be a sink or swim approach. Put him on projects where he is supported by others and can start contributing right away
