As the Inductee
New members of One Solution are allocated an induction mentor whose task is to help them settle into the company and get to know people. A mentor is allocated based on several different factors ranging from experience, role, age etc. They go through the required paperwork, ensure relevant staff are introduced and act as a point of contact for absolutely anything that may be required. After the first month of working at One Solution, the induction mentor will review progress and ask for feedback on the induction experience. This will be fed back to One Academy as a way of evaluating and updating our processes.
Being an Induction Mentor
Research has shown that effective induction programmes enhance individual and, in turn, team performance. Allocating a manager to work closely with new staff as an induction mentor has a positive impact on employee performance.
First impressions that are formed by the new team member can sow the seeds of content or discontent, having a major impact on the way the business is viewed and their role within it. If people are made welcome, feel content and as though they are fulfilling their potential, they are more likely to stay with the business and be a happy and successful contributor.
The first few weeks of a new role in a different environment may present challenges. We make every effort to ensure this is a positive experience that helps people really engage with their new workplace.
