"How Do I Do This Again?"

Can you find the ninja?
We've all been the "new person" to the office, or place of business. We've also all been the person who has no idea what they are doing their first day. It does not mean we are inept, or were a mistake to hire, it just means we have to get into the groove of things. Each business has it's own way of doing things and own way of working -- this means that they will need to be trained. That means either by you, or someone who is designated to train new employees.

With the lack of a good training program these days, it's no wonder employees make mistakes today. Companies, large ones included, give a brief explanation of how things are done, run, and where things are and go (i.e., "this is the copy room" "this is the lunch room" "this is where the mail goes") but without an in-depth understanding of all aspects of the business, poorly-trained employees could potentially cost the company or business money in the future.


Entrepreneur.com posted an article that talks about creating (and maintaing) a training program which will allow companies to gain new employees, as well as ensuring that veteran employees are up-to-date with training as well.  It may take some time, but it's better than having to shell out $$ to fix mistakes that could have been avoided from the start, right?
