Well, Company culture is nothing, but just an environment that is made keeping an orgination/company. It again varies from a small to a big corporate level organisation. This implies that when you join in a new company, you have to stick to that organisation's policy.

Answer to your second question, Induction training usually consists of following parameters:

- Need to inform a new hire about the company and it's culture

- need to check all credentials (originals) and references

- Need to inform them sign in and out

- Business unit they need to report along with a contact

- Need to get all employment forms signed

- Dress code

- Get the system ID generated

Hope this helps you.

Hi P.N,

With regarding to your query about Company Culture, this is my perspective to it.

Every company will have or want to have a company culture which is unique to itself, this could be the retention factor to many of the existing employee and a joining factor to many of the aspirants.

Creating a new company culture is a very difficult things, this needs to have the buy in from the Senior Managements without which this will not be a success. Start small like having an Open Door Policy in HR and you can advocate this same to all the Managers.

Open House Policy wherein the employees can voice their concerns and ideas for the growth of the organization. When we have this kind of brain storming sessions, it has been found that we will get some great points.

Fun@Work activities which are unique to your organization, typically CSR can be considered into this forum as well.

These are couple of pointers, I guess will help to start.

The second part of your query:

Induction Program:

Typicallly an Induction Program is one where the new joinees gets familiar with the policies and procedures of the organization and meet the senior managment team.

This starts off with the new joinee completing the joining formalities and then followed by the Ice Breaker Sesssion.

The organizations history has to be presented to create a sense of pride in the individual.

If possible the senior management should try and address the joinees for few minutes, in big organizations this is not possible so they usually have a presentation with the photos of the senior management so that everyone can recognize them.

Once this is completed we get on with the HR Policies and Procedures and the HR Handbook is also given to the  employee to study and be aware.

The concerned department heads should address the gathering to bring in more closeness to the team.

Typically the day ends with a dinner with the Senior Team & Department Heads, this can be modified as per your needs.

I hope this answers your query.
