the proper equipment, your team of landscape professionals can’t do
their jobs efficiently. Since the best efficiency comes through
proficiency, it’s important that you help your team to get
comfortable with new equipment as it’s introduced.
a proper introduction, you may find that your team is using the
turf equipment in ways that are unproductive or unsafe,
neither of which is good for your business. To avoid these issues,
here are a few tips to help you effectively introduce new equipment
to your team.
great way to help your team with their proficiency with a particular
piece of commercial turf equipment is to make them active
participants in the buying process. Rather than purchasing equipment
based solely on your own research, you can solicit feedback from your
on-the-ground employees about what works and what doesn’t.
this feedback to narrow down the choices, you can then involve your
team in the actual purchase process so they can hear from the seller
how the equipment operates. This gives them a headstart on
understanding how to use the equipment, meaning it will take them
less time to reach operating proficiency.
way to help your team gain proficiency with new equipment is to work
alongside them in the field after a new piece of equipment is
introduced. One advantage of this approach is that allows you to gain
real-time feedback from the people who will be using that equipment
in the future.
advantage of using the equipment yourself is that you will be better
equipped to understand any complaints that might arise as you’ll be
more familiar with the operation of the equipment.
