As we chase our tails, completing the day job, marketing the company, strategising for the future, etc, etc it’s often the case that we miss the tasks that aren’t directly in our line of vision. And this can sometimes involve making sure that everything is in place for the new member of staff that’s arriving on Monday… 

So, to set the scene, it’s Sunday morning and you’ve just realised that the new member of staff will be in the office, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 9am on Monday. They’ll be keen to impress and enthusiastic to start work straightaway, so how will they feel if they don’t have the right IT kit in place and aren’t able to ‘hit the ground running’? Not only will they feel demotivated and wonder if they’ve made the right decision, but their lack of productivity will also impact your bottom line. To try and alleviate the awkward situation that’s going to occur you quickly call a few current staff members (interrupting their Sunday lunch) to rustle up some IT kit and then muddle through when the new member of staff arrives. Unfortunately, you’re not completely convinced that they have the right software or security in place for the tasks that they’re undertaking… 

We know we’ve painted a pretty bleak picture here, and we fully appreciate the pressure that we can all find ourselves under. And we do have a solution. Simply, let us take the strain (not at the last minute but when you first appoint the new member of your team). Give us a call or email once an offer of employment has been accepted, and we’ll get the necessary IT kit, software and security ready in plenty of time for the new employee. We can take the hassle away from you, ensure a smooth start for your new team member and help to keep productivity at the max! Easy 🙂
