Trainer’s Tip: The Induction ‘Funnel’


Rich Lucas passes on some tips about how to organise an induction programme.

I use what I call a funnel effect, which lasts one week, but can be as long or short as you like.

Day one is very general, company objectives, health and safety, all the hygiene factors etc. As the days progress, the induction gets more and more specific to their job role, on day five, they are performing their role under the guidance of a mentor, who in turn, signs them off as being competent.

This induction is backed up with tick sheets for each day to give a framework and objectives to work to. A week after induction is evaluation day where you can do a short interview with the delegate and the mentor to check on everything.

It seems to work really well as it truly is tailored to every individual's job role.

I also put in courtesy guidelines for the mentors e.g. make yourself available all day on the first day, try and arrange to go to lunch with them etc. Happy inducting!
