Staff turnover is particularly high among new hires. 33 percent of new employees leave during the probationary period. For both employers and employees, every initial situation is associated with expectations and uncertainties. In order to involve team members right from the start in terms of content, socially and in line with the company’s values, motivation, the right to have a say and appreciation are the be-all and end-all. Positive experiences must be created as a future emotional basis as early as the first week of work. The new employee should be made aware of exactly where he or she fits into the company and why his or her contribution to the whole is so indispensable. Discussions about mutual expectations and the definition of upcoming core tasks are particularly important here.
