When you welcome a new member of staff onboard, there’s a lot to get down. Integrating them into the company means giving them the tools they need to survive. Training new employees can involve a variety of things, depending on the role and the work environment. But there are a few areas that many businesses can consider when they’re creating a training program for their new employees.
Health and Safety Training
Keeping your staff safe at work is vital if you want to protect them and your business. One of the first things you should do with new employees is make sure they know how to do their job safely. Even in an office, there are procedures to go over, such as what to do in the event of a fire or if someone has an accident.
Essential Company Information
There are always important things to know about the company and how it works. Some things new employees will have learned during the recruiting process, but it’s important to make sure everyone is up to speed. You might go over things such as company structure and hierarchy or policies.
Soft Skills Training
One of the things employers can sometimes find lacking in new hires is soft skills. They might have the right qualifications, but they need help with leadership, communication and other transferable skills.
Not every working environment requires computer skills. But in an office, everyone needs to have the essentials. Using Microsoft Office, including Excel, is likely to be important for every office worker. Getting them started with Excel could be easier than you think.
