Starting a new job can be a scary experience. You have new tasks, new co-workers, new rules, a new manager, new everything.
So your mission for this monday is to do something for a person who’s come to your workplace recently. Seek out a new co-worker – say, someone who’s been there three months or less – and ask that person how things are going and what they like about working here.
Get to know that person if you don’t already. Where did he work before? Where does she live? How’s the new job going?
If there’s any way you can help, make sure to offer your advice, your thoughts or your help. New people often appreciate a little help at first and at the very least some positive interest is always nice.

That’s great stuff matt, thanks for the links. This just shows the folly of not treating people well!
