Our staff induction has been developed to ensure your new starter’s transition in to their new position here at ECU is a smooth and effective process. Our induction serves to welcome new appointees, deliver critical information about the organisation, and to clarify any expectations for the position from both yourself and your new starter.
It’s important we induct a new starter as early into their employment as possible. Addressing a new appointee’s expectations at this early stage will have great benefits such as an increase in staff morale and commitment to the organisation; reduced turnover; the fostering of positive attitudes; a reduction of new starter anxiety; and early achievement in productivity and job proficiency.
Once the online staff induction is completed, you should meet with your new starter to discuss and set probationary objectives. For more information, see our Probation web page.
To help you prepare for a new starter, and to ensure we're ready for their commencement from day one, your Onboarding checklist provides everything you need to prepare for a new starter over the first three months.
To formally induct your new starter in to ECU, they need to complete the required items within the first six weeks of their employment. You will need to go through some of these items with them and sign their completed checklist.
