Induction Session


I am carrying out a q&a session with the senior managers as part of a supervisor induction progamme. Beverley Hadfield posted this idea in February and I agreed that it would get the new recruits involved in areas such as the companies mission and values. Has anyone any suggestions as to how to format the session over an informal lunch hour?

  1. Design a Poster
    Get your people into small groups (3 or 4) and give them a flipchart and pens, then ask them to come up with a company ‘poster’, advertising Mission Statements, Values etc to its employees.

    Give them the whole lunch hour to discuss, design and produce the poster in their groups and at the end display them on the walls in the room. Get an independent ‘judge’ to come in and decide which is the winning group. Give out a small prize.

    Helps with the competitive spirit, and gets people working in a team and also some great ideas can come up.

  2. More Fun
    Use the same appraoch used on question time, trainer acts as David Dimbleby. Either get experts in the panalists chairs or (as I often do !), get people from the audience to pretend tehy are experts in particular fields and let them supply ‘common sense’ answers (if they are senior managers, so much the better as I have seen such events lead to changes in policy !!)
