Because an induction plan helps new employees become more productive sooner, you'll reduce CCMA referrals if the employee knows the rules, codes of conduct and company procedures. And you can measure his performance sooner, as he'll understand the job better.
But to achieve this, you must include three vital elements to your company induction plan.
Three things you must include in your induction plan
1. Company related information
This can include:
2. Department information
Each department has its own specific processes and objectives. 'This induction can take place over a few days to a couple of months at least until your new employee is fully integrated into your daily departmental routines,' says the Loose Leaf.
You can include
3. Individual job requirements
This induction can take a few months or more. It depends on the complexity of your company and the job.
This part of induction should be done by your employee's direct manager. He must explain what your employee needs to deliver, by when and how it'll be measured and how he fits into the company and department as a whole.
Keep in mind that it's a good idea to follow up with your employee once he's completed the more formal aspects of the induction programme.
You can use this opportunity to ask him if he's fitting in within the company culture, if he has any questions about his job or the company and you can assess if he's meeting your expectations and give him feedback.
