Anyone involved in any aspect of the induction of new people into the workplace. This could be; Trainers, HR, Managers, Leaders, Senior team members or any other member of staff.
The benefits of welcoming new starters to an organisation with a carefully planned induction programme is recognised across all industries and businesses.
Induction is acknowledged as a foundation stone to smooth integration, early productivity and overall staff retention.
But just what should a good induction programme consist of? Who should design and deliver it? And how should outcomes and results be measured?
This Induction Training Design course will provide learners with everything they need to know to design an effective induction programme – whatever the requirements of their employer and whatever their role in the induction process. It makes extensive use of exercises, activities, discussion and sample documents to enable participants to practice in a safe environment and get feedback from their fellow participants and the trainer.
