Many employers see induction as a waste of time but it is a critical process when hiring a new employee. Induction gives the new employee an objective view of the company, the organisation’s culture and work ethic, which will allow the employee to better integrate into the workplace.
It provides the foundations for rapid growth and performance. If it is not organised and implemented properly, it may also lead to a disconnect. A well delivered induction programme will provide confidence to the new employees.
Benefits of an induction programme
Create a positive perception of the organisation while communicating its established culture, values and goals.
Ensure operational efficiency.
Ensure a happy and motivated workforce.
By explaining all the policies related to rewards and recognitions, and the career road map, the employee understands how he will progress in his career.
In the induction programme, the roles and responsibilities, and the achievement scope is also discussed which brings clarity of roles for the employee.
By providing an organisation chart and linking it with expected behaviours, you can provide clarity about accountability, lines of reporting and expectations.
An induction programme will establish good communication between the supervisor and the new employee from the very beginning.
