Venue Induction Project


I have been tasked with a project to research and develop an induction programme for a sizable SBU within a large organisation. An induction programme that will dovetail both upstream and downstream into the corporate level, functional level and also embed itself within each respective service partner's induction programme so that no matter where the entry point of a new employee into the organisation is, they would have been inducted to align with the organisation as a whole.
I have to follow a tailored project management approach to deliver this area which is also new to me although I understand the principles of this approach.

Has anyone worked on something similar, I'd be glad of any insight into the matter.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Billa

    These are a few things to consider.

    Should the Induction be online or in a training room as part as a group.  Both have benefits and disadvantages.   Online means that the inductee can start straightaway without waiting for the next available course, but misses the opportunity to talk to other new staff from other parts of the organisation.  Induction as group can lead to long delays if there are insufficient numbers, but allows discussion and questions.   It depends on the numbers of people needing training and the frequency of Induction courses.

    Do you want one person to provide all the information or should experts from particular areas provide information, eg health and safety, personnal and so on.  This can make it more interesting for inductees and allows meaningful Q&A.

    Does the induction cover core values for the organisation, background, future opportunities and challenges, expectations of employees?

    Do employees have to complete a test to show they have understood the information.

    Lastly, in my experience a corporate induction is most useful, when staff have been in post for a few weeks and are familiar with the organisation, and ready to ask more questions, rather than the first day or so, when they are just trying to familiarise themselves with their job.
