Keys to success for new hires

Posted on Nov 29, 2018 by admin

Helping your new hires succeed is within your business’ interest to maintain productivity and reduce the costly and time-consuming processes of recruitment.

Here are some tips to make sure your new hires excel in your office.

Provide adequate training
A new hire may have all the talent in the world, but without the relevant training, they will not be a valuable addition to your workplace. Your onboarding and chain of command are vital in this process. Set clear expectations and give high-quality training to your new hire, so they are empowered to achieve excellence.

A good mentor can make all the difference by giving meaningful support and guidance. A solid mentor will help your new hire fit into the office culture and ensure they are thriving in their new position. Pick a mentor that is approachable and aspirational.

Allow failure
No new hire will get the job right straight away. Allow a little breathing room for error so that the pressure of the new job does not become overwhelming and impede performance.
