New Employee Onboarding
Department Checklist
While it is ultimately the responsibility of the supervisor to oversee, engage in and facilitate the success of new
employees, onboarding new team members is a shared responsibility.
This checklist is designed to guide and facilitate new employee onboarding. Additional activities may be added, some of
the tasks may be delegated to the work team, and a copy of the checklist can be shared with anyone who is involved in
the onboarding process including new employees.
