Pampered Chef: Do you give your new recruits anything after they sign?

    I have been thinking alot lately about recruiting. I've got a few good recruit leads 'on the burner' right now.

    What I am wondering is - Do you give your new consultants anything when they sign? Like a "to-do" list of things you recommend, training resources, or help with Consultant's Corner....anything to get them started- either in general, or just to get them going that first week while they wait on their kit?

    What do you do with a brand new consultant? Do you just let the kit come and they figure it out? [I know when I first signed, once I had the email with my password to Consultant's Corner, I was on it checking out whatever I could. I'm not the norm when it comes to that sort of thing and I am also pretty tech savvy. ]


    Or is there something from PC directly that helps you with that? I've seen a couple things on the supply order- should I get them in preparation for that first recruit?

    Thanks. Just trying to plan ahead and not be caught off guard! :D

    Bobbi,

    Here's something Ginny posted ages ago. I'm not sure if you'll have to change things or not so you'll have to read through it.

    That's great! Thanks. I hadn't seen that. I also just came across Scott's two-part new consultant training documents in the FILES, also.

    I have now started giving all my new recruits the booking slide and go over it with them so they have this tool to use and get their business off to a good start. I give them a few other things like a sample hostess packet and such things that I use that is helpful in the biz.

    I have a little binder made up w/ a checklist (what to do before, after kit arrives-probably got on here), has the recruiting special that applies to them, upcoming sales promo, goal worksheet, and upcoming host/guest specials.

    I want them to have all this info so they can start calling people and booking as soon as they order their kit.
    I figured not everyone will know how to navigate CC right away, and I wanted them to know the things coming up so they were prepared and excited!

    I put the binder in a reusable shopping bag w/ other goodies- like highlighters, pens, and little things I use now and could have used when I got started.

    I think more than giving them anything, you should train them. I use the "supporting new consultants" booklet and use the "cook and book" section. I have them come to my house for New Consultant training. We make the 3 cheese garden pizza and go over their list of 100 (I start with 40). We talk about the full service check out and go over scripts for host coaching. I also offer to come their first party to support them, especially at the full service check out to get them as many bookings as possible

    I love the cooking at your house training! I am getting ready to incrase my team by like 6 people by May, and that is a great way to train them all on the products and how a show works all at once! Almost all have never been to a show before! What a great idea! Thanks

    I have "reinvented" the wheel so many times due to a lack of training, that I do not want that to happen with my own recruits. So I try to give them what they need to get started and let them know that I am available for any questions that they have. I think it is really important to let them know that they are not alone.
     
Have something to add?
