    Why is this unusual? Working population are not robots. 8 months for executive post adjustment is normal. It would be shorter if experienced staff were able to leave their desks/workplace and assist-more interest and incentive for them (motivates), and encouraging for the new staff member. Both go back to their desk/workplace more motivated to contribute and be aware of firm's immediate requirements from them. Mutual profit producing exercise.
