Employee Induction is regarded as an essential process of presenting the company to newcomers (just employed individuals) and providing them with initial employee training required for gaining a big picture of the company’s organizational structure, working environment and corporate culture. Its purpose is to provide new workers with a superficial understanding of their new place of employment and guide them through the duties and responsibilities they are supposed to carry out.
The process of inducting employees is managed under a corporate employee induction program which provides guidelines and rules for orientating and training new workers. Such a program includes default agendas that specify which current employees are assigned to inducting newcomers per position, per department. All the agendas are combined into an employee induction matrix that represents graphic schemes of visits and time initially planned for and actually spent on the induction process.
An employee induction program also specifies a schedule of employee preparation and training to enable newcomers to get ready for their new jobs and to ensure that trainers and couches are ready for training as well. Most leading companies use their corporate websites to provide new personnel with online induction and training.
