Get a Grip on Your D.C.
• Give prospective employees some limited instruction, then let them try the work up front.
• Determine if there are tests you can give that assess whether people can do the work or have a good chance of fitting into
your company's culture.
• Use a “buddy system” with seasoned employees in the department to get the new employees off to the best start.
• Look at whether you have an effective training program by function. Will cross-training improve production and give you flexibility in the use of your staff?
