Here are a few ideas on how to tackle the difficult journey of hiring another employee and then forming them to be an amazing asset.

Always Find Your Patience

Patience is a virtue, even in the modern day business world. It takes new employees some time to learn the ropes and all about what is expected of them. Sometimes it can even take them some time to bond with their co-workers so that they work with them well. Give them the time that they need, and give them tons of feedback in the process. Even negative feedback, as long as it leads to productiveness, can be helpful. It can help speed up the process of learning, but your employee will still learn and grow at her or her own pace. Encourage that growth.

If you hired an employee and they just aren’t getting it, don’t axe them right away. Sometimes a well-mannered, hard-working employee will do better in a different role or department. Give them different jobs and watch where they excel. They might not be an expert in a different department overnight, but if you give them time, they will likely blossom if they like what they do.

Reward in Creative Ways

Rewarding an employee doesn’t always have to mean a promotion. Kind words and thank you card with small rewards are often just as effective as more money. With that in mind, sometimes employees don’t need to move upwards in a company to be happy – moving to a different position they enjoy more can be just as enjoyable for some.
