The majority of induction takes place within the department. The Manager’s Guide to Local Induction has a checklist of information that should be shared with the employee. Particular attention should be paid to Health & Safety and all new employees should be allowed time to watch the videos on Health & Safety, Fire Evacuation and Fire Safety.
The employee will also be invited to a Welcome Lunch with the Vice-Chancellor and is encouraged to attend.
For more advice on Induction and the information contained on this page please contact your HR Business Partner.
