Induction Programs

Employee retention strategies commence at orientation

In addition to playing an important role in OH&S and risk mitigation, the right induction program is part of an organisations knowledge management process and is intended to enable the new staff member to become a useful, integrated member of the team, rather than being “thrown in at the deep end” without understanding how to do their job, or how their role fits in with the rest of the company. The best induction programs increase productivity and improve staff retention. As an organisation, you need to ask the question ‘do you have an induction process that:

  • Makes transition into a new role and your business easy and a positive experience for all staff
  • Makes new staff genuinely feel welcome and involved
  • Prepares for instant productivity and alignment to your vision and plans
  • Provides all fundamental information to succeed in your organisation
