Tips for Training Outsourced Employees
Use These Proven Training Techniques to Unleash the Full Potential of Your Outsourced Team
Welcome to OutsourcingBoss.com, where we share essential ideas to help you manage your outsourced team efficiently. In a recent video, we discussed the best techniques to train your outsourced staff so that they become valuable additions to your organization. This blog article highlights the video's essential takeaways, providing you with a complete approach to maximizing the potential of your outsourced staff.
1. Create Step-by-Step Video Tutorials by Recording Your Screen
Creating video tutorials is one of the most effective ways to train outsourced personnel. As you complete a task, record your screen, and explain each step. Upload the video as an unlisted video to a platform like YouTube and share it with your team. This method allows your staff to pause, repeat, and follow along with the video to ensure they properly comprehend the task.
2. Use Snagit to take screenshots and create visual guides.
Snagit is a powerful tool that can record your screen and snap screenshots with annotations. This tool is ideal for making simple visual tutorials for tasks that do not require a full video tutorial. Create a set of annotated screenshots with step-by-step directions for your team to follow, for example.
3. Make PDFs for Quicker Tasks
Consider developing one or two-page PDFs with screenshots, bullet points, and short directions for more straightforward jobs that take a few minutes to ten minutes. These concise instructions are easy to share and refer to by your team members.
4. Instruct your virtual assistants (VAs) on how to create training materials.
Teach your VAs how to develop training materials such as PDFs and video tutorials to save time and establish a more effective training system. Not only will this save you time but also assures that you have a library of training tools for new team members.
5. Use your virtual assistants to train other team members.
Use your present VAs' skills and knowledge to train new team members. Not only would this save you time, but it would also assure uniformity in training and work quality. When distributing work among your VAs, define your aims, emphasizing that their position is expanding and that you value their expertise.
Effectively training your outsourced crew is vital to the success of your organization. By following these tried-and-true approaches, you will save time and ensure that your team has the necessary abilities to flourish in their responsibilities. Remember that a well-trained staff is more likely to generate excellent results and contribute to your organization's success.
