Many often, employers face challenges such as lack of fundamental interpersonal skills such as cooperative skills from their new employees. The primary causes behind this can be associated with inexperience and lack of time for adaptation, which can be solved by a professional approach.
One of the root causes behind this challenge is the fresh employees’ lack of exposure to real work situations. To be precise, most of the new candidates who are recruited to a firm may not have experienced the challenges behind a task accomplishment. This is because they were trained only regarding the required professional skills. The second reason is that not enough time is given to new employees for integrating into the existing workforce. Most often, these employees find it difficult to communicate appropriately with their colleagues, just because of lack of time and work overstress.
Apart from the aforementioned factors, the next blame has to go to those who recruit these candidates without properly assessing their skills such as communicative, cooperative and problem-solving skills. Lack of professionalism within the firm can also create the situation.
Turning to the solutions, the first is to provide the eligible candidates with adaptation training. This can be done by the either the course provider as a part of their course or by the employer who select the candidate. Secondly, ample time should be given to new employees to interact with their co-workers. This can be done by conducting weekly get-together or regular departmental meetings. Finally, professionalism has to be brought in to every firm by framing and implementing a protocol which suits to each unit.
To conclude, the major reasons why new staff in a firm lack inter-personal relationships are related to inexperience and lack of time. Providing them proper training and creating a favourable atmosphere for them can mitigate the issue.
