THE GINGER GROUP OF
INDUCTION TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR MIDDLE LEVEL POSITIONS
Induction Training program
An induction training program is conducted mostly for new recruits before they start the job
assigned to them in the organization. An induction program is very necessary in order to
familiarize the employees with the work environment i.e. the people, the culture, the
surroundings etc. so also introducing them to the company policies, standards etc. and giving
them all the help and guidance they require to perform the job in the most comfortable, effective
and efficient manner.
The induction process begins during the recruitment and selection phase when the employers
first meet the potential employees of the company. Here they can identify where the employees
are lacking behind and therefore can suggest additional training that is needed to be introduced in
the induction process. An induction program is also necessary for explaining to the employees
the role they play in the organization and what responsibilities they are required to fulfill and in
what manner or procedure. It is also essential for the employee to learn the hierarchy of the
organization in order to know whom to report to, whom to take orders from and who he/she is
authorized to delegate work to.
During the induction program the employees are assessed simultaneously and on its completion
the feedback is given to each of the recruits. This evaluation done of the employees will help the
management know the weak and strong points of the employee and therefore the management
can suggest other options to help them improve.
Induction program will help the employees understand exactly what the company wants and does
not want out of them, it will help understand how things are done in the organization and what
behavior and attitudes are expected out of them

restaurants, cleaning, service, laundry, cafes, clubs, gym’s etc. Especially in India they are one of
the major recruiters in the service sector who recruit more than 2, 00,000 people from around the
various cultures and geographies that India has. Due to this diversity it is very important for a
company to establish a common base on which the employees could establish contact with one
another, be comfortable with the environment and also gel well with the existing employees of
It is also essential for the employees to learn how to handle clients, customers and other
etiquettes that are important in performing the job effectively. There are other policies and
procedures and standards that a company requires their employees to follow and maintain. The
new recruits need to be familiarized with these policies and standards therefore an induction
training program is very essential in the hospitality industry.
So also employees need to be given training, instruction, guidance, supervision and information
about the health and safety precautions that should be followed by every employee. This should
also be undertaken in the induction process.
