In this week’s Canright newsletter, we take a look at different ways to present information to new hires during the onboarding phase. With focused and digestible onboarding, we can avoid overwhelming new hires with information.
New hires face an overwhelming amount of information when they start out. From logging into email to understanding a full proprietary product suite, it’s an undertaking to absorb all the information you need and hit the ground running. To give new employees the best start, it’s best to focus on key areas, give the employee the resources they need, and provide information in digestible bites.
In highly technical businesses, having a clear, concise way of presenting information internally is often a struggle. It can lead to slower onboarding and overall less clarity in exactly which practices make your business run well. A strong knowledge base collects all of the data and documentation needed to make a business run and presents it in an easy-to-follow format.
An ideal knowledge base isn’t that hard to set up — wiki software allows for a well-organized, fully searchable archive of all relevant information, split by topics that pinpoint exact areas of focus throughout your business. For the best results, aiming for a holistic view of what a business does, in a process-oriented way, can make a huge difference in shining a light on exactly how your business really operates and what’s being accomplished.
