It’s been 90 days! How’s it going with your new hire?

Hi friends,

It’s been almost three months since your new hire came on board! They seem to be settling in and have been working on their 90-day goals with your coaching and support. There’s no better time to sit down and reflect on how the first few months went and how you (both) see the future evolving.

The 90-day discussion focuses on two key areas:

  1. Provide the opportunity for early performance feedback. By discussing what is going well and what could be better, it serves as an important checkpoint for the new hire on their progress to goals.
  2. Create an open forum for discussion. It offers the new hire a forum to ask questions of their manager regarding expectations, express any concerns they might have, and request resources and support.

To help you conduct an effective 90-day discussion, we’re bringing you Part Three of our Onboarding Series. Read on for tips on how to use the 90-day discussion to build trust and help your new staff member deliver great outcomes.

Then, check out our 90-day discussion template and get started on your own.

This brings us to the end of our Onboarding Series (for now!). You can find Part One and Two of our Onboarding Series here and here. Are there other onboarding-related topics you’d like us to cover? Don’t hesitate to drop us a line at!
