You hired a new employee. Great! How did the first day go? Have you prepared everything so they can smoothly transition onto your team?
Does your onboarding process include thorough employee training?
While new hires should meet most of the skills, education, and experience you were seeking when you filled the position, they will still need to learn the ropes and adjust to a new job role.
Here’s why you need to stop overlooking employee training.
Poor Training Leads to High Turnover
If you have a weak onboarding process, or you don’t even have one at all, your new hires will have a bad experience. Most of them will leave within the first 90 days.
Then, you’re stuck spending more money to go through the hiring process all over again.
Invest in your team, and you will see higher rates of retention and employee loyalty.
You’re Setting Up Employees to Fail
You want your team to succeed, right? Then why overlook one of the most crucial aspects of your employees’ performance?
Without the proper training, they cannot perform their jobs – crucial positions and roles to your business.
When you neglect employee training, you set your employees up for failure. And it isn’t your staff’s fault.
You’ll Increase Employee Productivity
If you don’t properly train employees, they’ll end up doing busy work, instead of the work that needs to get done. This is for all staff members – temps, interns, and full-time employees.
Every year companies lose $300 billion in productivity loss because employees are distracted at work, unhappy, or not efficient enough due to lack of proper training.
Focus on increasing employee productivity, and you can do this by creating a training program that sets new hires up for success.
