Let’s break free from the induction mould.

New Job, first day.

You receive your name badge, the link to the 15 compulsory online courses (pray for a click-through option) and sit about waiting for Steve from Health and Safety to tell you not to walk around with hot coffee (how do I get it to my desk then Steve?).

Now we’re going to tell you about values, about how modern and exciting the business is, how you’ve joined at an amazing time.

We’re going to tell you…

When it should be, let’s show you.

Induction programmes we’ve designed take teams on a Campus Tour Treasure Hunt, they teach company history through immersive challenges and they, fundamentally, pass the partner test.

You only get one chance to make a first impression so if the first time you return home from your new job, you’re not excited and passionate about the day you’ve had – well, that really says it all.

And don’t get us started on online inductions… 

Inductions are a unique opportunity to foster a sense of camaraderie and belonging, that goes beyond the confines of a conference room or a series of videos. In the modern workplace, where diversity and dynamic environments are celebrated, it’s crucial that induction processes reflect these values.

These immersive experiences have a powerful impact. They don’t just inform; they inspire. They create memories and forge connections that a PowerPoint presentation simply can’t. It’s about turning the mundane into something memorable, transforming the usual “info dump” into a journey of discovery.

A well-designed, immersive induction program can also be a strong reflection of a company’s commitment to employee engagement. It’s a statement that says, “We care about your experience from day one.” It demonstrates a willingness to invest in people, not just in terms of money, but in creativity and effort.

In these interactive induction experiences, new joiners get a taste of the company culture in action, not just in words. They witness teamwork, problem-solving, and the company’s core values in real scenarios. This hands-on approach not only makes the first day memorable but also sets the tone for their entire journey with the company.

In conclusion, it’s time to break free from the traditional induction mould. Let’s make first impressions count with experiences that are as vibrant and dynamic as the workplaces we’re welcoming new joiners into. And if you’re not sure how to start. Reach out.
