I find many employers hire those who they feel are “qualified and experienced” employees to fill positions. Then little time is spend, if any, and limited resources to orient and train these new arrivals in the practices the employers expect to be performed.
Results seem to be that many employees do not meet the expectations of the employer, or the new recruits are not as productive as the employers expect them to be. Results – new staff members fail to make the grade and are usually dismissed. Some employees are injured, because they do not understand proper operating procedures of the tools and equipment they are expected to use.
This is a crazy cycle and does not make good business sense nor is it economically feasible.
