The purpose of an induction is to ensure that all staff gain the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to begin performing effectively in the shortest time possible. It helps staff understand the aims of the organisation and the way their role contributes.
If workers’ induction training is unsatisfactory, this can lead to a host of problems, for example, accidents, low job satisfaction, costly mistakes, unsatisfactory performance and high demands on managers.
As a result, this course has been developed to provide learners with the knowledge and skills required to manage an effective induction. On completion, learners will understand the different stages of an induction, and be able to design an induction checklist.
