Inducting a New Joiner

 

Overview of the Purpose of the Guide

This Inducting a New Joiner Guide aims to inspire and support line managers, to understand the benefits of effectively inducting and on-boarding a new joiner.   

The guide  provides some insight into actions and activities that will help you to create a great first impression from the day you 'offer' someone the job and throughout the early weeks / months in role.

A good Induction programme makes business sense, whatever the size of the organisation, and whatever the job.  The length and nature of the induction depends on the complexity of the job, and the background of the new employee.  One size does not fit all!

The term induction is generally used to describe the whole process through which employees adjust, or acclimatise to a new job and working environment.

This guide provides a comprehensive guide to the purpose of an induction plan, and what to consider before the new joiner arrives, through to the  completion of the plan, including:

In addition to the guide there are some useful supporting materials/templates (see below).
