Depending on the size of the organisation, it may be appropriate to send an email advising everyone of the new starter, their position and contact details.
A well-prepared and comprehensive induction program can help staff quickly understand their responsibilities any expectations of them. Existing staff should support a new staff member throughout the induction process (e.g. by explaining key duties, introducing them to key staff and helping set up their workspace and intranet access).
Staff changing positions will also need an induction into a new role and team envionment.
What are the elements of a good induction checklist?

Review your recruitment process regularly.
