Dear Sir/Madam:
I wonder if the induction includes orientation as well as socialisation? It is hard to tell each one is different from others, because their functions and forms are similar. Thanks for your concern.

Hello Yang. Yes, inducting new employees should be about starting the socialization process as well as familiarizing them with tasks, procedures, etc. And this is the challenge where most of the induction is done “online”. The first few hours/days leaves a lasting impression on the new hire. This is the organization’s chance to win the heart as well as the mind of the new recruit.
Assigning a “buddy”, inviting them to team meetings and onsite and offsite social occasions, having plenty of dialogue with their new boss; all of these things well help to engage the new employee and get a committed and productive worker.

Dear Yang
Greetings.
Induction training is a must for smooth performance of a person in a new environment. It is different from socialisation where a person may be introduced on the whole in a platform to a mass. By induction, we can reduce attrition rate, improve efficiency, Productivity,create a we feeling and proud about the ethics of the company

Dear Les,
Even you said that most of the induciton is done"online", this is not the case in some industry. Like in hotels, it is impossible for new staff to learn the work requitrments without invovling in practical places. I wonder if the induction conducted in hotel is different from other workplaces'? Thanks for your conern again.
Kind regards,

Dear Yang,
Orientation covers activities of introduction of freshers to the organisation & their work units.Here co.history,philosophy,objectives,rules & policies/ procedures are made known to new employees.
Socialisation process influences employee performance & helps understanding the right way to do a job.It is made up of 3 stages
1. Prearrival
2.Encounter
3.Metamorphosis
The outcome of a good socialisation process is work productivity, commitment to organisational objectives and decision to stay put with the organisation.

Hello Yang. I did not mean to imply that most companies conduct inductions online. In fact, this is not the case. For some companies, induction is a mix of offline and online activities. I was trying to say that for those companies for which most of an employee’s induction is conducted online, that this presents a challenge in socializing the new employee. Thank you for allowing me to clarify.

Yes, induction is a process of orientation as well as socialization.
it is concern with famialarizaing new entrants with company policies, working pattern, introducing him/her with other employees.
In a way it is a process of makin new employee comfortable with the organization.
