As a General Counsel or Head of Legal onboarding for your legal and compliance team is crucial. Good onboarding starts with a great recruitment process and continues all the way through the first year of your new hire.

1. Hiring process

  • Go through an overview of job responsibilities and key short-term goals
  • Set up meetings and facilitate introductions with key team members and stakeholders across the business to help integration
  • Schedule regular check-ins so you have time blocked to provide feedback and address any questions that occur moving forward
  •  Set clear objectives and expectations for the coming months
  • Continue to have open communication and regular check ins
  • Provide access to training programs that can help their development, success in role and integration into the business
  • Implement a mentorship program pairing them with an experienced colleague
  •  Conduct performance reviews formally or informally at the 6-month and 1-year milestones acknowledging achievements and identifying areas for growth. Ask what they need support with too
  • Talk through longer term goals for the role and potential for career progression in future. Ask what their aspirations are too so you can align expectations
