Induction Processes

From a recent conference - the Golden Key Asia-Pacific Conference - one of the panel members, Anders Sorman-Nilsson, pointed out that induction processes may provide new members of staff with their first significant introduction to the corporate culture – one from which they may never recover. 

It is certainly worth thinking about induction in this light, and the relevant question is not "Did we leave anything out?" but "What impression did we leave of the kind of organisation we are?" Answers to the two kinds of questions may lead in opposite directions; an induction compliance checklist like this one, for example, may provide an impression of the organisation which, on reflection, you may not wish to be the first impression. 

Anders is at Thinque.
