Induct a new employee

Induction provides information and support to new employees to enable them to feel included in their new environment, and be productive with meaningful work as quickly as possible.

This information may include:

  • general information about administrative matters (e.g. payroll information, recordkeeping)
  • key policies and procedures such as workplace health and safety, inclusion and diversity
  • the Code of Conduct and other expectations of the agency.
