Helpful Tips for Training New Employees

Be understanding and give them information at a steady pace.
Reslize that this person is brand new to all of this. They don't understand it like you do and you should go at a steady pace when training them. As a trainer, it can be very easy to talk in terms that are internal and that only employees who have been there a while will understand. If you catch yourself doing that, stop, and rather than confuse this new hire, explain what you're saying in a way someone new can understand.

Make sure they know they can ask questions.
You should have a training culture where it's ok to ask questions. Otherwise, your new hires may just guess and end up doing something wrong because they were too afraid to ask you.

Make your training real and show the new hire how it applies to their job in a real way.
For example, if you are training an employee on how to handle a sales call by role playing, ask real questions that a real customer might ask over the phone. Then, when you and the employee feels like they have the hang of it, let them take a real sales call so they can apply their training to a real situation.

Explain the "why" behind your company's mission.
It's important that you explain the big picture to anyone coming on to your company. They need to know how their role plays a part in the company's overall goal. This can help them stay motivated and really feel like they are making a difference with this company.

Make sure the rest of your team is helpful too when it comes to your new hire catching on.
You should encourage other employees that the new hire will be working with to be welcoming and available to answer any questions as the new hire has them.
