Hi Everybody,
We are starting Buddy system in our organization where a new joinee will be assigned a Buddy for few days so that he/she should not feel left out and can easily acclimatize with the new organization.
I have to make a document regarding this. Can anyone has any document related to this OR can anyone help me in documenting this as i don't know what are the Topics to be included in this.

We also do have a buddy system in our organization. It works on specialization area basis (HR, Mktg, finance, logistics) i.e. for each dept. You can choose such criteria..and also take into consideration the possible problems that may be brought forth for advise/ solutions..
Regarding documentation, you may come up with a short policy document as such wherein you write the purpose of this system, the criteria, how it will work, who will be reporting to whom, how the followup will be taken, etc. I don't have a format or else could have forwarded to you.
Hope it proves some help..

buddy is there at times in IT/ IRES cos wiuth COPC certification..
mostly buddy's are somebody experienced in the process and freindly by disposition who are willing to help acclimatize the fresher....
buddies are normally not asked about appraising the fresher as Quality Deptt works on a parallel maintaining records of QC during production/ operations phase.
one drawback: fresher forgets what has been taught during training and learns shortcuts to productivity...( i think you can guess the damages-- all initiatives focussed on organsiation wide quality imprvements will fail....)

Hi Monica
Mentoring / Buddy Program is a very strong tool for sustaining an unperturbed organizational culture and also to leverage on the organizational strengths.
I am sure it will work well in your organisiation as well.
Attaching an article on Mentoring Program. Hope it will help you in framing the guidelines.
You can also come up with a Feedback Form in line with the given essence of the program which shall help you in identifying needs for course correction, if any.
