At GTS, we constantly preach the need to have written protocols, processes, SOPs… whatever you want to call them. These are the steps by which everyone in the office completes tasks. It’s so important to know that everyone is doing things not only the right way but also the same way. You will want to give specific directions such as: you need to be sure to wipe in this area because the doctor will often grab the light this way, or this is where she sometimes grabs the tray to move it closer. These written SOPs will be a huge benefit for the new employee to understand how the office prefers things to be completed.
