Supervisor's guide to induction

A new employee's view of the University, their immediate work unit and their role is strongly influenced by early impressions. A well planned induction helps make those first impressions positive and helps the employee settle comfortably and quickly into their new role.

As a supervisor, you are responsible for ensuring new employees in your team are inducted to Southern Cross University. This does not mean you have to provide all of the information yourself.

The following resources have been prepared to help you develop an effective work unit specific induction program. Adapt the resources where necessary to meet the needs of your work unit and its new employees.

I encourage you to seek suggestions and feedback from your employees about their induction experience so, through a process of continuous improvement, your employees receive the best possible introduction to SCU.
