Inducting new staff: guidance for managers

The Library is fully committed to ensuring that all staff, irrespective of role, grade and location, are provided with the relevant knowledge, skills and experience to enable them to perform effectively, and with opportunities to develop their expertise.

There is also a legal obligation for employers to provide new staff with information about the employment contract, terms and conditions and health and safety issues. This begins with an effective induction and it is the line manager's responsibility to ensure that new staff receive a well-planned and structured induction.
