Induction programmes – help needed


I am currently studying for my CIPD and am at the final stage of the qualification, putting together my management report. I propose to review the induction programme for my current employer and make recommendations for it's improvement, which will then be implemented. Can anyone offer any advice, guidance or examples of effective programmes which may help me?

By way of background, we are an owner-managed business with 25 employees and are actively recruiting and growing the organisation in all areas at present. I am particularly interested in seeing examples from smaller organisations, but would also be keen to compare these with how it's done in larger companies.

Many thanks

Rachel Middleton

  1. Academic or practical focus?
    Hi Rachel
    I’m currently piloting a diagnostic that looks at the effectiveness and “joined up” nature of the induction and how this links to organisational outcomes, but it’s meant really for larger organisations. However, en route to the pilot, I’ve got loads of papers about socialisation and how it happens and if you’d like to give me a call, I can talk you through what I’ve got. It tends to be on the academic, rather than practical side, but this thinking may help you consider how you’ll do your project, what you’ll look at, etc.

  2. Induction programmes – help needed
    Hello Rachel
    I am currently responsible for running (and in the process of overhauling) the induction for a small organisation (approx 80 employees) so I might be able to help.
    Drop me an email at I can share with you how we do it at the moment and what I am proposing to change if that is going to be any use to you?
