Leave a list of company rules and procedures on the new persons desk ? Have a full day training session on security procedures on the first day


     Draw a map of Web. Imagine you are taking the new teacher on a tour and point out the most important areas.


     More fixed

     Procedures should be official and clear People need to know what to do and what is expected of them It is uncomfortable when you do not know exactly what to expect in a situation.

     Less fixed

     Procedures are important, but they should be flexible People like to show initiative and adapt to new situations It is boring when you know what to expect every day

     Thank You
