Avoiding Misunderstanding With Your Employee
Be Careful While Hiring
If you want to fill up your office space with very efficient and well mannered employees, the first step you should take is to hire employees who have an ideology and ethical codes which suit your company’s policies . HR Managers and supervisors who use to review the resumes of the candidates should make an attempt to go through their psychology when they take the face to face interview. They should make sure the candidate is able to perform the job duties according to company policies.
Leave No Scope For Confusion
Another step you can take to avoid employee misunderstanding is to provide employees with detailed description of their duties and responsibilities when they are hired for the first time. You can provide procedure manuals which help them to do their job in the right way. Most of office manuals have ‘Do’ and ‘Don’ts for the employees’ behavior in the office. You should make sure that these manuals are specific in the case of content. Manuals must provide step by step instructions for how to do their job in the expected way. They should be in a good format which can be read easily by the employees.
Provide Proper Training
Training on a technology or system in which the employees are supposed to work, is a must when a new employee joins. It can make the employee more efficient and independent on his work. Otherwise, there are chances for other employees not helping him properly or not teaching him what to do. This would cause less productivity and unnecessary stress between employees. In total, it can affect the whole working structure of the company gradually.
Have Proper Procedures In Place
Company should have procedures in place to resolve work related problems. These procedures should be easy to understand and it must be ensured that all employees are aware of them.
Ensure Proper Supplies
HR person must make sure that employees have all the supplies they need to do their jobs. Employees should be comfortable with the facilities which are given to them. In case they need more supplies, the supervisor should arrange for them.
