When I'm at work: Supported employee induction Learner's workbook
The induction process
The first day
On your first day, your workplace will:
- welcome you and show you around
- introduce you to the people you will be working with
- tell you about the pay and administration processes, for example, completing leave forms or making a complaint
- tell you about workplace health and safety.
At the end of the first week
At the end of the first week, your supervisor will take you back through your induction process to make sure you understand what has been covered. Your supervisor will also clear up any questions you might have after working for a week.
At the end of three months
After three months, you will have a meeting with your supervisor to talk about how you have been going. This meeting is called a probationary review meeting. Things you might talk about include:
- the confirmation of your employment
- how everyone’s performance is evaluated
- the system used to regularly evaluate your and other supported employees’ performance (performance appraisal)
- the wages system
- goals for you
- the letter of appointment you are given.
Your workplace will also set a date for your next appraisal.
At the end of 12 months
You should have settled in by now and learned lots of new skills. These skills will be written down to show what areas you can work in and what machinery you can use. At this time, you will also have had a wage assessment that may lead to better pay because of the skills you now have.
