Developing an Effective Induction Program

One of the reasons people change jobs is that they never feel truly welcomed or a part of the organisation they joined. If a company spends considerable money recruiting, interviewing, and perhaps even relocating employees, it makes good sense to go one step further and make the new employee feel like they have made a good decision to come to this company.

An effective human resource professional knows that managing employee performance is more than conducting performance reviews or disciplining staff. Performance management begins with an induction to the organisation and the job, and continues on a daily basis as employees are trained and coached. A thoughtful new employee induction program, coupled with an employee handbook that communicates workplace policies can reduce turnover and save that organisation thousands of dollars. Whether your company has two employees or two thousand employees, don't leave new employee induction to chance. Give them what they need to feel welcome, know why they were hired, and know how to do the job.
