hello everybody
can you please tell me the potential pitfalls of a induction/orientation program.
what are the problems that one can face in delivering an effective orientation program
and finally how does a orientation program help in ingraining the organizational culture amongst new emplopyees

Dear Amit,
I feel an induction/ orientation program is very important for a new jinnee where you are actually introducing a new jinnee to the whole organization.
It should include proper briefing about the company's profile, culture, practices and policies, code of conduct, settings etc.
In addition to this new jinnee need to be briefed in detail about his/her roles and responsibility in the new position, he/she is going to take up.
Introdution to all staff members.
The objective should be to make that candidate comfortable with the new organization, so that he/she can feel part of that organization as early as possible.
So, pitfalls of an induction programme can be not taking care of the above mentioned points properly.


The Induction Programme is designed to help new employees to become familiar with the requirements of their post and adapt to their new working environment as quickly as possible. The Induction Programme covers several aspects:

i) To provide a planned introduction and training period which will assist you to become competent in the duties of your post;

ii) To help you to develop contacts with those staff with whom you will need to liaise in connection with your job;

iii) To ensure that you are aware of how your post relates to the work of the Department as a whole;

iv) To provide you with an overview of how the University works and an understanding of its mission.

The purpose of this document is to welcome you to the University of Southampton and to provide a brief guide to the Induction Programme.

b) The Induction Process

i) Induction Coordinator

The majority of your induction will be carried out within your Department. An Induction Coordinator will be appointed to oversee the process and this will normally be your Head of Department or their nominee. You should have regular meetings with the Induction Coordinator to discuss progress and to review your training and development needs. These meetings will also provide you with the opportunity to raise any other issues relating to your employment. You should also be allocated a Senior Colleague/Mentor from the Department who will act as a source of informal advice and support.

ii) The Induction Checklist

The Induction Checklist outlines the basic stages in the Induction Process and can be adapted to meet the specific requirements of your post. You can check off each item as it is covered. Please note that you should discuss any outstanding items with your Induction Coordinator at your meeting at the end of the first month so that arrangements can be made to ensure these are covered. If you have any queries about your Induction Programme please contact your Induction Coordinator in the first instance

may this will help you.
