The Mistakes New Bosses Make (And How To Avoid Them)

So you have recently been promoted- congratulations! Becoming a boss or manager in your workplace is a huge accomplishment, and a goal that many entry-level employees set for themselves in the future. But with this new job comes a pretty generous helping of new responsibilities, not all of which you might feel prepared to take on. Luckily for you, AIR Pre-Hire is here to help! Read on to discover what mistakes people new to authority position tend to make, and how pre-employment screening services can help prevent a few of them!

New Boss? Making the Hire: A New-Boss Pitfall

Once you have been promoted to a managerial position, you will more than likely be in control of making new hires for the company. Up until now, it is very likely that you have only been on the opposite side of the desk during the interview process. Taking on the role of interviewer can be just as intimidating! The last thing you want to do is make a hire that will not work out for the company, so what can you do? Implementing pre-employment screening services into your standard hiring practices can help you identify stand-out candidates, making your decision an easy one.

Managing: It’s More Than Just Delegating

Once you have made the hires, you will dole out tasks and duties as necessary. But just because you give an employee a specific assignment does not mean that your work stops there. Checking in on the progress of an assignment may have you feeling as though you are “babysitting” your employees, but the fact is that their work is a reflection of your work. Don’t be afraid to nudge them in the right direction or even to reassign the work if you discover it is necessary- it’s much better to stay on top of things than to discover too late how bad things have gotten.
