WhyYou Must Take Time to Onboard Even Expert Employees

With Travis Johnson

The Growing Your Team Podcast Episode 137

When onboarding experts onto your developing team, it can be easy to assimilate to a minimized training plan because, after all, they are “experts.” Many small business owners fail to realize that regardless of how much one knows, they have never worked for you. This means it might not be as easy for them to translate their skill into how you run your business and what you expect from them without proper training.  

As Travis Johnson highlights, putting time into new expert employees is just as important as training a novice new member.

People need to be onboarded properly if you want your new team member to fully understand their role and your expectations. And this understanding is what is needed for team member success, business growth, and for you to be happy signing their paycheck every pay period.
