3 things to remember when training someone new

When the need to train a new employee comes along, there is one thing to remember: An employee who feels properly trained is more likely to adjust to their new gig. Here are three things to remember when you’re bringing on someone new…

People learn how they learn: Some people enjoy in-person training and others like to read instructions. By combining the two, you’re giving your new employee a chance to learn and ask questions in-person from a trainer, while also providing them with a resource they can look back at if they’re unsure about something.

Patience is a must: People learn at their own pace. If you immediately throw a ton of information at someone, only some of it will stick. Take your time when training so each lesson is fully comprehended. If you make it a point to make train slow and thorough, you won’t have to go over a lot things multiple times.

Practice, practice, practice: Completing a task correctly once is great, but make sure you are giving the employee a chance to do things over and over in training so when the time comes, they won’t have any issues with getting it right on their own.
