HR Consultancy – The importance of a great induction

/ 0 Comments /

I was recently at an event giving a talk on HR consultancy and culture and we got onto the topic of inductions.

Inductions are very important when taking on new employees. Unfortunately, inductions are not something that is usually given much thought to. An induction would typically just include a quick tour of the office, quick introductions and some fire safety points. As a HR Consultancy firm, we urge you to do things a bit differently here. In this video, I explain what you can do differently during your inductions and why they are so important.

Employees at JMann Associates get a four-week induction, and during those four weeks, they are given a timetable. This timetable highlights all of the processes and all of the things that they will learn to help them with their job during that period.

However, one of the key things we do, where the majority of business owners do not is talk about values. We talk about values from day one and we talk about how those values fit into the business. We also talk about the behaviours we expect to see with those values, and we talk about these every single day from the beginning of our employee’s induction linking everything back to those company values.

Our company values are our key meaning our inductions are key to your people foundations. With a good induction, you are able to show and tell your new employees what your business is about and how they can fit into your culture. Our advice would be to create a robust process, set out a timetable, ensure the employee knows exactly what their induction is going to cover. Make sure your values are heavily included as opposed to your usual walk and tour of the office.
