The organisation recognises the importance of effective induction of new employees. A robust mandatory core induction programme containing both corporate and local elements ensures that the employee receives vital information, knowledge, skills and essential ICT equipment to ensure that they are adequately equipped to carry out the duties of their post.
The organisation has a legal obligation to ensure that risks are minimised and neither the staff nor the organisation are unnecessarily exposed to hazardous situations, which may result in harmful litigation, and both human and financial cost.
The aim of this policy is to ensure that all new staff or staff on training placements are fully equipped for the challenges of their new post, but that they are welcomed into the organisation and embrace the corporate vision, values and culture. It is hoped that the staff induction process will be a positive experience, which will foster good will on both sides and lead to a constructive working relationship.
