A well-selected employee is only a potential asset to your business. Whether or not he or she becomes a real asset depends upon personnel training.
To allow sufficient time for training.
Not to expect too much from the trainee in too short a time.
To let the employee learn by performing under actual working conditions, with close supervision.
To follow up on your training.
Check the employee’s performance after he or she has been at work for a time. Re-explain key points and short cuts; bring the employee up to date on new developments and encourage questions. Training is a continuous process which becomes constructive supervision.
Supervision is the third essential of personnel control. Good supervision will reduce the cost of operating your business by cutting down on the number of employee errors. If errors are corrected early, employees will get more satisfaction from their jobs and perform better.
