Getting the balance right between the amount of text, videos and questions can help to balance out the information, ensuring the information is retained and the inductee is ready for arrival.

The onboarding process, as it’s commonly known, is the entire process of getting an individual to work. Through the use of an online induction, you can ensure the process is smooth from start to finish, helping to ensure your employees are safe and your company has a good reputation.


The importance of an online induction

It is becoming increasingly common for people to change jobs every few years. Optimising the induction process is essential so your business can remain efficient, no longer is it feasible for site managers to conduct all your inductions due to the loss of time and therefore money.

Every company is different, which is why it’s important to be able to customise your induction platform to meet your needs. Whether that’s in the form of customised data collection, or a tailed induction, having the right platform can really help improve the onboarding process.

By moving the induction process online, it allows for your business to invest the lost time into other areas of the company while also providing your inductees with all the information they need. It also allows the inductee to complete the induction within their own comfort zone, which often helps with remembering the information.
