You want to aerate your wort before you pitch, but I have forgotten before and done it after I pitched - not the next day "after", we are talking within an hour "after". Once the yeast start making alcohol, no more stirring.
A best-practices method would be to hydrate your yeast in a cup of 90F water for 30 minutes before you pitch it. The yeast go in healthier and they won't just sit on top.
You should also be doing something to aerate. Some people pour back and forth between 2 buckets. Some people hook a paint stirrer on their drill. I use an electric whisk for 5 minutes.
