If you’ve just brought on a new hire, you no doubt want to give them all the resources they need to succeed. Starting a new job is intimidating; We’ve all been there! For the sake of your newbie and your company, making the transition as seamless as possible is paramount.
One new-hire hurdle you may have not expected: your communication systems. While said systems may be completely natural at this point to your veteran employees, they may look like completely alien machines at first glance to someone not accustomed to them. In addition, your new hire may also need to unlearn the way their telephone system worked at their old job, which can be a daunting task in and of itself.
But there are plenty of ways you can minimize or outright remove this obstacle for your new hire, especially if you’ve worked with Central Telephone to install your company phone system.
