Today’s blog is brought to you by our friend Sara at Venngage.
Do you ever feel like there are too many things to remember at work? This may be especially true if you’re working at small company where processes are always changing and growing. This may also be the case if you’re working in a rapidly growing workplace where new talent is regularly incoming.
That’s why it’s helpful to have documents that act as quick reminders for processes that you might find yourself forgetting.
Let’s face it, nobody remembers everything, right?
I work at a SaaS company that rapidly moved from startup status to small business status in about a year. Since joining the company a year ago, our team has doubled in size, and we’re still hiring. We’re always looking for ways to improve and implement new processes to suit our scaling user base and project goals.
Because of that, we need to make sure that new hires get on the same page as quickly as possible. We also need to make sure that current team members don’t fall behind.
Here’s my suggestion: create HR process posters.
Process posters introduce the process and break down the steps in the process. They typically use minimal text and, instead, use visuals to communicate information in a quick and easily digestible way.
After all, 65% of people are visual learners. So why not appeal to that learning style by using visual learning modes?
Plus, posters are also nice to look at, so you don’t feel bad about pinning them up in your workspace.
So how do you create a process poster? Even if you’re not a designer by vocation, it doesn’t have to be difficult. All you need is an understanding of some basic design principles. This infographic walks you through the steps for how to create a process poster.
