You’ve just hired several new employees—congratulations! Find out the most effective ways to train your new hires and make them company superstars.
1. Give Your New Hires Training Manuals
Instructions for company software, a directory of employees and references for resources are all excellent features to include. Online manuals make it easy to add and adjust information and are accessible to your new hires when they are at home
2. Set Your New Hire Up with a Mentor
Mentor programs facilitate relationships, relieve stress for new hires and allow existing employees to become leaders. The mentor can help your new hire with everything, from operating company software to navigating who to talk to get things done, making it easier and less intimidating for your new hire to understand the company.
3. Use an E-Learning Program
Make sure your new hires know commercial real estate. Whether it’s understanding real estate finance, how to use debt correctly or property valuation, you want your new hires to sound like experts when working with clients and partners.
4. Test Your New Hire’s Knowledge
Sure, you can give your new hires all the tools to succeed, but did they actually learn everything they need to know? Find out by quizzing them with Bisnow Education post-video quizzes, similar to this one here.
5. Encourage Questions
Encourage your new hires to ask questions instead of making assumptions. It’s easier to prevent the mess than do damage control. Make this easier by stating no question is a dumb question during those first weeks.
6. Set Your New Hires Free
You hired your new employees for a reason. Trust them, let them flourish and avoid micromanagement. They may not be perfect at first, but with time, they’ll learn the system and some of them will become your superstars.
