By following these three document tips below, you’ll hire and train the right employee for your business.
1. Employment Applications
Make sure that your employment application form follows state laws against discrimination. If needed, check with a legal expert. This will help protect you against lawsuits. It’s important to have the right language in your application that shows you’re an equal opportunity employer.
2. New Hire Checklist
To ensure that your employee gets a proper introduction to your business, have a new hire checklist. Your checklist should cover:
- First day procedures: Make sure the employee completes all important documents and forms.
- Company policies: Cover company rules and policies. This should include dress code, vacation/sick time and other important policies.
- Administrative procedures: Have a list for all the internal hiring forms that you need to complete.
- Position information: Outline important information about day-to-day job responsibilities with the employee.
This will help to ensure the employee gets off on the right foot with your business.
3. Safety Plan
For new hires, it’s important to give them a safety plan that shows them how to respond in the event of an emergency. It’s important to thoroughly cover employee safety. Have a fire exit strategy as well as what to do in the event of a robbery if your business is in retail. This will help to better keep your employees and business safe.
