Induction Training is absolutely vital for new starters. Good induction training ensures new starters are retained, and then settled in quickly and happily to a productive role within your organisation.
The structure of the training should cover the following key areas:
- Orientation (physical) - describing where the facilities are.
- Orientation (organisational) - showing how the employee fits into the team and how their role fits with the organisation’s strategy and goals.
- Health and safety information - this is a legal requirement.
- Explanation of terms and conditions.
- Details of the organisation's history, and background
Every organisation/ company, should have a well-considered induction programme. The induction programme will provide all the information that new employees and others need, and are able to assimilate, without being overwhelming or diverting them from the essential process of integration into a team.
Induction Training is a 1/2 Day Course
The purpose of induction is to ensure the effective integration of staff into or across the organisation for the benefit of both parties. Research from the Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) shows that getting induction right can:
- Help workers become effective quickly
- Improve motivation
- Extend the range of skills
- Allow employers to delegate
Within social care organisations, the need for a thorough and appropriate induction programme is paramount.
All staff, both full- and part-time need an induction programme. Some groups have specific needs - long-term absence or maternity/paternity leave, senior appointments, technical specialists.
