Is your company going through the stage of acquisitions and mergers? If that is the case, the kind of training that is given to your news employees can either bring success or break it.
In case the new employees will join your board from a company that you acquired recently, they have had their own set of protocols and rules and may be unfamiliar with the way your business functions.
If you are looking for a seamless and effortless integration, all new employees should be well-acquainted with the standards and procedures of your company.
Here are a couple of tips to train your employees effectively when your business is in an expansion mode.
Set up a well-defined mentorship program
You should pair your new employees with a mentor as soon as they join your company. This pairing up should be done on the basis of their job function and tenure. During this hand-holding session, a mentor who belongs to your old team should share the best practices and guide him on how the new employee should be functioning in his new role. However, a company should be continuously tweaking their mentorship program to make sure that they are up-to-date with the existing practices and make sure that they are providing the finest services to the customers.
Evaluation of the new employees should be done to ascertain the level of their skills so that you can determine the level of training needed by them within the first one month of their employment. This skill assessment should be there as a component of your mentorship program or they can be conducted separately.
