    Give Your New Hires Training Manuals (Preferably Online)

    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 to get things done, making it easier and less intimidating for your new hire to understand the company.

    Use An E-Learning Program

    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.
