Induction Frameworks & Solutions

Giving your people the best start with an engaging experience

Induction (sometimes referred to as 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 new people to say “Wow, this is great.  I feel really welcome, everything is so well organised and I'm learning so much.  It's a great experience” – then you’ll need a well-planned induction. 

How we can help you

We create effective and engaging Induction Frameworks and learning solutions that help new people feel part of the team and enable them to be productive.  

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, and 1st day through to 3 months.  

We also design and create the right mix of induction activities that will best achieve the desired experience and outcomes. The mix may include eLearning, coaching, self-directed, buddy sessions, workshops and digital tools for an integrated approach.

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

  • Develop commitment and alignment to your organisation
  • Instil a personal sense of connection and belonging
  • Achieve faster productivity on the job
  • Ensure compliance requirements are met.
  •  

An Induction Framework will help when:

  • You have an adhoc approach to induction that needs to be thought out as a whole
  • You have inconsistency in your new starters’ experiences and process
  • New people (and Managers) say it takes too long to get useful and be able to do their job
  • When there is low engagement from new people, or high turnover in the first 12 months
