Is there any proof?


Does anyone have any figures that prove that individuals that go through an induction perform differently to those who do not?

Many Thanks

  1. Probably Not
    Ermmm… I think any figures would be a sweeping generalisation.

    I don’t think there’s any doubt that a good induction course brings value, happy campers, increased performance etc.

    But an awful lot of induction courses are poorly thought out, poorly implemented, cut short due to “business demand” etc. and these courses may actually reduce performance, value, morale etc.

    But I can give you a good example from when I wrote my first induction program.

    At the time I worked for a call centre where staff turnover was 95% in the first three months and sales staff never hit target in their first month.

    After running an induction program for several months our turnover of staff dropped to fewer than 5% of staff and more than 70% of staff reached their targets in their first month.

    So I think it can make a dramatic difference if it’s done right.

  2. Induction
    Rich, can I ask you to be more precise about what you mean by induction? Are you talking about orientation of the individual to host organisation or are we talking about basic job skill training, or a bit of both?

  3. Induction
    Hi Garry

    I refer to induction as a bit of both, but mainly the initial induction such as organisational values, procedures, assignment of a mentor etc.

    I have figures off my own induction program that I developed on Staff retention after six months and staff satisfaction, but wondered what else was out there
