Staff inductions

After you have appointed someone to a position, you need to introduce them to your business and their role. This process is called a staff induction.

New staff can easily feel overwhelmed when starting a new job. An induction can help them feel comfortable and understand their duties and your business quickly. Preparing an induction program will help you retain staff and avoid having to go through the recruitment process again.

Inductions are also useful for existing staff that are changing roles or returning to work after a long absence (such as maternity or long service leave).

Your staff induction program should help staff understand their responsibilities and your expectations of them. It must cover essential work health and safety information.

This guide explains staff inductions so you can prepare and deliver a staff induction program.
