About the book

Does your organisation suffer from high new starter turnover rates?

If yes, you are not alone. Some of the most common training challenges require quick and adaptable training solutions. This mini Toolkit provides just such a tool.

The latest CIPD Recruitment, Retention and Turnover survey suggests that 22% of new starters leave within the first six months. This is a worrying statistic for any organisation, particularly at a time when recruitment and selection budgets are at a minimum. There is, however, a quick, simple and effective way to ensure that new starters remain motivated and productive and that is by implementing and maintaining an up-to-date, comprehensive and engaging induction programme.

Whether you are an experienced HR professional wanting to ensure that your programme still meets the above criteria, whether you are an inexperienced HR professional newly tasked with implementing an induction programme or whether you are a line manager with responsibility for inductions, this toolkit will be invaluable to you.

Packed with over 40 practical induction tools, as well as real organisational documents, case studies and slides, this resource will enable you to:
-Assess your organisation's needs and adapt the toolkit to meet those needs
-Customise and brand the toolkit, for a tailor-made induction programme
-Gain buy-in from your colleagues at all levels and show real ROI
-Implement a comprehensive and consistent programme from pre-course to evaluation, setting the standard for the coming months.
