Staff inductions provide essential information and training for your staff.
Basic health and safety information, company policies and procedures should all be disseminated with new staff to ensure they are aware of what is expected of them and how they must operate during working hours.
It is also good practice to get each member of staff to sign an induction checklist to provide evidence of what training and information you provided and when. This document should be kept on each staff member’s file and updated as necessary.
Performance reviews (appraisals) can provide excellent information and feedback on how your staff operate and what they do/do not need to fulfill their job role, which can also improve future inductions for new staff.
An annual appraisal should also review any training that your staff have undertaken the previous year and then identify further training needs for the year to come.
