What should Induction Training cover?
So, you have hired your next employee and their first day is fast approaching – how do you settle them into your business quickly and what on earth should an induction programme look like?
Every business is very different to the structure and length of an induction, but these are some top tips to help you put together a programme that will help your new employee feel part of the team quickly.
On their first day there will be Health & Safety matters that need to be explained and potentially risk assessments that need to be completed. This may incorporate a tour of the building. Always without exception cover these on Day 1.
Ensure your new employee understands the Vision and Values of the Company and these relate to their job. You may provide them a run down of the structure of the Company and who does what.
Having a job description is a great start to make clear the expectations you have for them. Ensure they know their Line Manager and colleagues, so they see where their role fits in to the organisation.
You will need to train your employee on your own systems, processes and ways of working and so perhaps plan how you can do this over what period and how do you check their understanding as you progress?
Ensure you have regular reviews to monitor the progress of new employees and to give them the opportunity to flag in any concerns or areas they feel they need more help with.
For new employees to really feel engaged and part of the team then the better prepared their induction is, the better the results. If you are not sure where to start, then we are happy to help.
