Induction Frameworks & Solutions

Giving your people the best start with an engaging experience

Induction (part of onboarding) is all about making new people feel welcome and engaged from the start, reassuring them that they made the right decision, and enabling them to become productive quickly.

A great induction makes all the difference to new people’s experience and engagement. If you want your new people to say “Wow, what a great experience!  I feel really welcome and everything is so well organised.  What a great company to work for.” .... then you’ll need well-designed induction. 

How we can help you

We design induction frameworks and create learning solutions that are integrated, engaging and effective, helping new people feel part of the team and enabling them to be productive quickly.  

We work with you to define the ideal induction experience to achieve the outcomes you want for new starters. We also identify the elements of their role that they can start doing early, along with all the key organisational information they need as a foundation.  These elements are organised into an induction framework from pre-start, first day and to their first 90 days.  

We design and create the right mix of induction activities that will best achieve the desired experience and outcomes. This may be a blend of: 

  • self-directed learning
  • eLearning modules
  • digital learning
  • coaching or buddy sessions
  • facilitated workshops
  • webinars
  • workplace experiences or tasks
  • supported by digital learning and performance tools.   

A well-designed induction brings new people up-to-speed faster by supporting them from pre-employment right through to on-job performance.   This will:

  • Build alignment to your organisation's strategy and goals
  • Develop a personal sense of connection and belonging
  • Enable faster productivity on the job
  • Ensure compliance requirements are met.
  •  

Starting with an Induction Framework is a good approach when there is:

  • An adhoc approach to induction that needs to be thought out as a whole
  • Inconsistency in your new starters’ experiences and processes 
  • A need to cater to multiple business units, locations or roles 
  • Feedback from new people (and managers) saying it's not working 
  • Either low engagement or high turnover of employees within their first 12 months.
