A recent survey carried out by XpertHR found that a huge 91% of HR professionals believe that a successful induction process is the most important part of an employee’s training. Yet nearly half of employers surveyed felt that the induction process in their organisation was in need of a major overhaul.
So why are current induction programmes not working?
The research by XpertHR found that the main reason was due to a lack of involvement by the direct line manager of the new starter. In fact 61% of respondents cited this as the reason for an unsuccessful induction, with other reasons being a lack of investment by the company in its induction process, and lack of training for those carrying out inductions.
