An induction should be provided to the new employee as soon as they commence

 

their new role.  This may include a checklist:

 

 

Policies, procedures, employee handbook

 

Workplace Health and Safety

 

Introductions to team and supervisors

 

Tour of the office

 

Providing resources required to undertake tasks

 

An assigned buddy to answer any questions in the first few week

 

 

 

 

The value of an induction should not be underestimated.  A good induction is a

 

good start for the new employee and will benefit the organisation and

 

employee by:

 

 

Engaging them from the onset;

 

Motivating the new employee to be more proactive sooner;

 

Minimising organisational risk in terms of compliance and safety

 

Providing the opportunity to immerse your new staff member into the organisation culture

 

Preparing their work space and tools required

 

Increasing your 'employer of choice branding'
