Starting a new job can be daunting, with new employees often feeling rudderless in the crucial early days. A structured induction programme, customised to an organisation’s culture, brand and market, gives direction and can be extremely beneficial for both new employees and the business.
These programmes provide theoretical and practical knowledge, including personal branding, stress management, generation theory, relaxation techniques and technology training, to help and support people to make the transition into their new environment.
By providing a “big picture” of the company and the business environment in which it operates, new employees gain a deeper understanding of their skills and their role in the organisation. This in turn enables them to become a useful, integrated member of the team.
Good induction programmes not only increase productivity and reduce short-term turnover, but also play a critical role in terms of performance, attitude and organisational commitment.
