Here are some points to consider as you develop an induction plan for your business:
1) Identify key current employees to provide hands on training to the new hire. It will take extra time and resources to properly train the new employee, so this must be accounted for.
2) Create a checklist of essential items.
- Email account setup
- Uniform, phone, supplies
- Clean desk
- Clean truck
3) Give the new hire access to training items, safety rules, passwords and keys.
If your business doesn’t have a formal process now for new hires, consider starting a system for this process. Don’t worry if it’s not perfect from the start, it can easily be reviewed and changed as your business evolves.
