As a facilitator of induction courses with an American multinational company, I began to wonder if what I was presenting during the induction course was a reflection of what was happening in the workplace. Its one thing talking the talk, but if a company’s management does not walk the talk it raises issues from labour turnover to presenteeism. (The term presenteeism is sometimes used to describe those who attend their jobs in body but not in mind.) What I intend to do is to look at what is induction. Is it worth the cost and effort. What does it include? How effective is it? I will look at induction in theory first and then
in practice in the Hewlett-Packard Manufacturing Operation in Leixlip, Co. Kildare.
