Investment Executive, Canada’s national newspaper for financial services industry professionals, interviewed Cissy Pau of Vancouver-based Clear HR Consulting Inc. for an article on how to integrate a new hire into your team.

Cissy provided human resources advice and expertise on the 5 key steps to integrate a new hire. After introducing the new hire to your industry and to your specific company, here’s what she had to say about the importance of setting clear expectations about the job:

Be clear about your expectations, Pau says. Outline any opportunities that the job or company offers for the new employee. As well, ask the new hire about his or her hopes for the role.

State clearly what his or her role includes, Pau says, and how to do it. As well, explain how the role fits into the company’s structure and what kind of training he or she will receive.
