Even if it may seem that the job description, job objectives and responsibilities have been discussed thoroughly throughout the hiring and orientation process, it is essential to provide written objectives and job responsibilities as well as a training plan. The written document(s) will help the new employee stay on task and meet agency goals within expected time frames.
- Give new employees a written job description so they understand their responsibilities
- Provide them with performance goals and objectives for their division and their position, or make sure their supervisor covers this
- Determine a training plan (e.g., compliance, supervisory, professional development), and establish a plan and timeline for training
