Investing Time

What new employees need is someone to provide them with company knowledge as often as possible, as fast as possible.

Maybe some individual is exceptionally curious and tries to get as much information as possible. And maybe some people know very well how to find their way around. But I think time needs to be invested if you want to get results. Otherwise it will be lost and the person will usually become more and more uninterested. Learning new things increases motivation, while leaving someone all alone for days, brings only dissatisfaction.

Things are learned much faster through communication than reading manuals. I know that latter is easier but if you want results, there is really no choice: somebody needs to do the hard work.
