This is an interesting article from the Independent which states that only 36% of new starters felt welcome on their first day.
Workers are more likely to settle quickly at smaller businesses, according to research.
Forty-one per cent of employees working for businesses with a staff of less than 50 admitted they were welcomed with open arms on their first day.
And those entering a smaller workforce claimed to feel settled a week faster than those entering larger organisations with more than 250 employees.
The poll of 2,000 office workers and HR specialists also found 56 per cent of small business workers were pleased to see their workstation all set up and ready for use the minute they walked in the door.
In comparison, just 36 per cent of employees felt welcomed on day one of the job in larger businesses, while only half had their computer set up for them before they arrived.
