Video is one of the most consumed media content on the Internet. That being the case, many areas take advantage of this. The corporate world is one of them and they don’t stay behind. They often use videos for many purposes, like safety induction or how to do tasks correctly. However, there is another key factor that should be taken into consideration when making a video: induction for new employees. 

Induction for new employees is extremely important because, after all, when you hire employees you must instruct them in all aspects of their work area. It’s very common to find new employees that don’t receive adequate training that helps them integrate smoothly into a company. Before making this type of video, we’ll present you with 3 key stages to know for induction videos.

So, these 3 stages are:

  1. General Induction
  2. Specific Induction
  3. Evaluation 

These are important because they give full comprehension of the induction process.

  1. General Induction

In this stage, you must give relevant general information about the company. This information is key to give knowledge and development of any position. However, it’s important to note that all the personnel of a company are sellers and promoters (direct or indirect) of the same. So it’s fundamental to give proper orientation to everyone about the same corporate image. At this stage, the following information must be given:

  • Structure or organigram.
  • Motivational talk.
  • Products, articles, and services.
  • Development programs.
  • Social security.
  • Regulations.
  • Policies.
  1. Specific Induction

In this induction, you have to share specific information about the kind of work that must be done inside the company. At the same time, every relevant aspect must be addressed. It’s important to remember that every person needs a clear, simple, complete and smart induction of what they must do. As well as how they must do it and in what way is going to be evaluated individually and collectively. This stage is generally led by the position’s chief personnel, who will make the presentation of the direct boss. They’ll also present coworkers and key people of different areas. The following information must be supplied:

  • Type of training of the position.
    Specific structure or organigram.
    A diagram for product or service production.
    Importance of each area for the general process.
    Risk factors.
    Safety rules or standards.
    Employers and employees’ obligations and rights.
  1. Evaluation

After wrapping up the induction process, and before finishing the training process, personnel must do an evaluation. This evaluation has the goal of identifying which key points weren’t clear enough for employees during the induction process. By identifying these doubts, you make sure to reinforce them. It’s also recommended to make a periodic evaluation, given that in the day-to-day work tends to be done mechanically. So it can result in mistakes in the process, maybe even leading to accidents. So it’s important to make a checkup from time to time.

After reading all of these stages, you may have noticed that something popped up a few times. That’s right: the organigram. If you want to know more about this, we recommend you this article: Organizational Chart – What Is It?
