“Doing great work in a great place to work“
A well-planned and structured induction goes towards creating a positive, welcoming experience and helps to integrate new joiners into the School of Clinical Medicine, their department and to their team. It should enable them to understand our vision, culture and purpose as well as getting them up to speed quickly on their role, responsibilities and how that fits in to the organisation. Planning in advance is key to creating a positive experience for your new joiner, from setting out a clear and personalised induction timetable, planning IT equipment/accounts, arranging a welcome desk through to organising a buddy or mentor. By connecting with your new joiner before their first day, you can start to build a relationship early on and help them feel both excited about and committed to their new role. Make sure you send out a welcome letter and Head of Department Welcome Letter.
Getting the first day right is so important. Your new joiner is likely to be feeling
apprehensive and by creating a warm and welcoming start, it will help to reassure and
excite them that joining us was a great decision. Ensure the new joiner receives a copy of their induction plan and checklist.
This is the time to cover off the basics and help the new joiner to start to build their network and settle in. Ensure you’re building in regular catch ups and refreshers as the induction progresses.
By the end of the first month, your new joiner should be immersed in our culture, their department, team and role as well as progressing through their probation.
This is the time to get into the detail with your new joiner on the vision of the Clinical School,
supporting in embedding their network as well as putting in place development plans
