Your company is expanding, and you need to hire new people. Time is of the essence, and you want to get the ball rolling to continue business revenue. After the interviews, receiving paperwork from applicants, and choosing new hires, you now face the problem of training them to become the best for your company.
The following are useful tips when managing inexperienced new hires:
Set Some Limits
A new employee will typically depend on your help and guidance regarding their job. While it is ideal to assist to a new hire, then refrain yourself from going the extra mile. The new hire may get used to this and become needy even when dealing with trivial tasks.
Continue to develop your skills at work at your own pace, and teach new employees to figure some things out by themselves. But, if mentoring new hires become mind-draining and physically exhausting, then it is time to change your approach to it.
Do You Want In Or Out?
Dealing with new employees has its challenges and rewards. After a while, you will decide if you want to make an impact on someone by mentoring them or setting some boundaries to keep yourself sane and focus on your duties. But know that you get to reap the fruits of your hard work if you help new employees become the best at what they do. As they gain experience and confidence with their jobs, you will have some reliable and loyal employees in the future.
Helping an inexperienced new hire can lead you to resent the person and hate your job. You need to assess if you are helping them, with their workload by doing them yourself, or you are making them better employees by teaching them, to stand on their own feet. The answer can tell you what kind of mentor you are.
Dream of The Future
Do not forget the main purpose of getting new employees to your company is because you are growing and there is a need to distribute the workload. Hiring people and training them gives them a chance to be an asset to your company. During the process, you can develop a good relationship with these employees, which will likely become your strong allies down the road.
