Different organizations may be taking different initiatives for introduction, but there are some necessary steps which can be applied by every HR in their company.

1. Develop a plan of 90-120 days within which the employee can understand the company, its work, its customers and the day to day culture of the office.

2. You should always make sure he / she gets all the necessary things like business cards, identification and access cards, email id and systems access, information on payroll etc.

3. Allot an employee who can give guidance to the new employee in various common tasks such as logging in.

4. You can also arrange lunch so that the new employee gets an informal introduction with all his team mates as cited on

5. Most importantly, introduce the new employee to the important people in the company and help them to build these relationships.

6. Announce to the other employees beforehand and tell them about the new employee so that the co-workers are interested in meeting him / her.
