One of the most frustrating aspects of running a manufacturing facility is losing people from the lines of your production floor. If you don’t have the right people in the right place, you risk missing production quotas, which could create strained relationships with your customers. A company’s ability to onboard new employees quickly and adequately is key to meeting production quotas and minimizing production disruptions.
As manufacturing companies grow, one area that often gets ignored is the onboarding of new employees. Taking managers away from their ‘real’ jobs to teach these new employees ‘how things are done’ can be an expensive proposition because it can take managers away from doing what they do best—overseeing the production lines.
One of the ways to shorten the time it takes to onboard new employees is to provide simple, easy‑to‑use training documents that will help the new team members get onboarded quickly so that they can get to the work they were hired to do. These documents don’t need to be 100-page manuals that never get picked up. Instead, they can be simple, easy-to-use documents that can minimize the training time not only for the employee, but for the manager as well.
Here is how to put this document together:
When your next new employee arrives on the job, hand him or her your easy-to-use, simple-to-follow document that will quickly and efficiently walk your new team member through the process of onboarding. In this way your company can save time, money, and even frustration. And who wouldn’t want to do that?
