How to induct new employee into a workplace

by | Jan 28, 2011 | Employers Tips

A workplace induction is a great start to any healthy employee/employer relationship.

Knowing what is needed when conducting an induction for a new employee is a great start in creating a productive and confident employee who will benefit the business in short and long term.

The 7 elements of What Should an Induction Program do?

  1. Establish rapport
  2. Introduce the organisational culture
  3. Outline the organisational Vision and Mission
  4. Clarify job role and responsibilities
  5. Familiarise employees with conditions of employment, facilities and amenities, policies and procedures, whilst avoiding information overload
  6. Obtain feedback on the effectiveness of the induction process
  7. Fast Track Your New Employee

Getting a new employee started in your business is like starting a farm. You don’t just go out and grow crops. The connection you make in the beginning are like seeds planted in the ground – they won’t pay off in the short term. But if you water, fertilize, and give them plenty of sun, they’ll grow into your first crop – and from that first crop you will get more seeds and harvest again and again.
