Setting new people up for success

Company Induction

Providing a consistently engaging welcome experience

Are you wasting time and money letting your great new talent change their mind before they even start? Are you making them feel like an inconvenience or someone who has to be processed during their first week? Do they get a different experience depending on what team they’re in? Are they being left to sink or swim, or just figure it out as they go?

On average, one in three new employees leave before their first year is out. So let’s change that and get them engaged right from the moment they sign your contract, reinforcing their decision to join your company, and get them excited about how they can create value. And let’s make it easier for managers too!

Depending on how complex your company is, we may start with a framework before applying best-practice principles, practices and tools to help you deliver a unique and consistently engaging welcome experience for your new people.

Role Induction

Getting people up to speed quickly

When it’s taking too long for a key role to get up to speed, or induction training time keeps getting extended, it’s time to rethink the approach.

We’ll determine exactly what’s needed for your people to reach competence, and make it easy for them to get there. Using an integrated approach of digital learning, instructor- led methods and performance support tools, the time to competence signoff could be reduced by up to 60%. That translates to savings in time and money and an increase in performance providing a measurable return on investment.

Whether it’s a new role, a key operational role, a high value role or just a high turnover role, let’s streamline learning for faster, higher performance with less time and effort.
