How to get an employee induction process right

An induction process is crucial for helping your new employee settle into your company. But it can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start…

Failing to put together the right paperwork puts your new starter and your company at risk of breaching regulations. Which could end in hefty fines and hazardous accidents…

Your new starter should have an induction in the first week of starting their new job. An induction involves telling your employee how your company works and providing activities for them to complete.

Your induction is an opportunity to show your new employee what a great company you are and the best things about working for you.

Talk about your vision, goals, and history. Fill them in on how their job role works and outline opportunities for training and development. When you create a motivated and well-adjusted worker from day one, you make it easier for them to settle into their role and progress.

You could also use this time to book them in for meetings with other members of the team. On their first day particularly, your new starter might be nervous when they don’t know anyone.

“Your induction is an opportunity to show your new employee what a great  company you are and the best things about working for you.”

Introductions don’t have to be formal or take up much time – but they can really help make new staff feel welcome and part of the team.

Remember to discuss with your new employee the key employment policies, ensuring they fully understand their probation period and how they will be managed during this. Make sure they know who to contact if there is a problem and if they are unable to attend work.
