Due to a recent change in process within a business area the need to mass recruit (10+) each month has dissolved. With this change a classroom based Induction is now not cost effective, or of much use as was built for large groups and not the 2 people per quarter this area forecasts it will need.
I am researching alternative solutions for induction that do not require facilitation as the SLA in this company is 1 trainer to 6 delegates.
What methods do you use to induct new staff when recruited 1 at a time? How affective do you and your new staff find it? Any horror or success stories would be great. So far I have been researching workbooks, online resource libraries, e-learning, classroom training with other areas that are still using that method, job shadowing/buddy work and watching DVD's. Any other ideas would be very greatly received.
Thanks for your time
