Benefits of an induction program

What is an inductions program?

An induction programme is an important process for bringing staff into an organisation. It provides an introduction to the working environment and the set-up of the employee within the organisation. The process will cover the employer and employee rights and the terms and conditions of employment. As a priority the induction programme must cover any legal and compliance requirements for working at the company and pay attention to the health and safety of the new employee.
An induction programme is part of an organisations knowledge management process and is intended to enable the new starter 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.

 

Potential Savings for on-line learning

Digital or on-line classes obviously reduce overhead for inductions, but they can also drastically cut costs for brick-and-mortar occupancy. How?  Decreased instructor-led sessions and increased group sizes and capacity.

 

Make the blend right!


Designing an online induction programme for organisations where there are concerns about the quality of induction being given in distributed sites - i.e. usually away from the main HR function.

The trick seems to be to ensure a blend of delivery to the inductees - compliment a one day face to face with on-line reading material, pre-knowledge questions/ quizzes. If you are clear about what you want the online element to do there are real advantages. I would recommend an approach which kick starts the induction - enabling new joiners to have some basic information about company history, any specific rules or legislation, health and safety and procedures which will be valuable to a new employee

Most successful on-line induction programmes are available to new starters before they join so that if they have web access they can start some of their learning in advance of joining the organisation. Of course, this can't be compulsory and provision should be made for staff to use the online induction in the first couple of days in the company too.

Use the blended learning approach to achieve maximum impact, as it meets the learning needs of all employees.

An online induction programme is the perfect way to assimilate new employees into your organisation. They can familiarise themselves with the organisation from day one and have a safe environment in which they can find answers to the many questions they may be unsure of asking and may not come to mind on induction day. It also provides for a far more productive face-to-face session with new employees as they will have all the background information and can engage in a two-way discussion about the organisation.
An online induction programme is also particularly effective for compliance issues such as Health & Safety. New employees can be briefed on all aspects from day one and the database will track that they have been made aware of all organisation policies and regulations.

Objectives of an induction programmes

There are at least four objectives of an induction programme.
1. Information
2. Integration
3. Training
4. Testing

An online solution works extremely well for point number 1 as well as for most of 3 and 4.
Integration and cultural fit is best catered for in a community atmosphere within a half day or full day workshop.
Finally, some areas of training and testing may require physical work and/or physical presence of a trainer, mentor or other work colleagues.
