Did you know that 22 per cent of staff turnover occurs within the first six weeks of a worker’s start date?* Leaving a new employer so early is not a step people take lightly, so why does it happen? The answer is a lack of engagement.
To boost engagement, an employee induction – whether face-to-face, online, or a combination of both – should form a key part of your onboarding process.
We understand that not everyone has the time or resources to create their own induction. That’s why we’ve created a guided induction framework to deliver the critical elements of an online induction without the headaches.
Essential components of a good employee induction
Across all organisations, new employees will have the same questions when they start a job:
- How is the organisation structured?
- Who are the key contacts?
- What sort of culture and atmosphere is being promoted?
- What are the organisation’s expectations of me?
- Where can I find important information?
- What systems will I be using?
- What are the entitlements and benefits?
From business to business, industry to industry – our experience in building online inductions has proven time and time again that this is true. Would you say that your organisation is really any different?
Learning Seat makes it easy
Learning Seat’s new guided induction framework takes the guesswork out of building your employee induction, by providing a proven road map that ensures you deliver the content that helps answer your new starters’ most important questions.
Our Induction Framework Document (IFD) gives you a structured view of the course, including the visual layouts. The content areas are clearly defined so key people in your organisation can simply add the information that’s relevant to your organisation and hand it back to Learning Seat to build.
If you’d like more information about our guided induction solution, or you’d like to find out whether a custom induction is better suited to your needs, call us on 1300 133 151.
