Contractor Inductions

Difficulties with Induction

Adding a lot of new contractors to your workforce, is challenging. Renewing existing contractors and their staff, across multiple locations, is even more challenging when you have limited resources. Health and Safety staff are already stretched so dedicating time to sitting each contractor’s employee in a room for hours on end, is both time consuming and expensive.

The real question to ask yourself however, is how much time your health and safety staff are spending in a classroom, when they could be out doing some high value work that they don’t have time to do? The average health and safety person spends 70% of their time training the same material, over and over again. Imagine if you had more time to better protect the company from the real and present risks.

Some of the common difficulties associated with Contractor Inductions;

Timing: In a business setting, managers may be too busy on some work days to spend adequate time with new members of staff. What this means for new staff is that their induction can be rushed, shortened or, in a worst case scenario, ignored.

Inconsistent delivery of information: Typically, more than one manager/trainer will deliver the employee inductions. This leaves open the threat of inconsistency in the delivery of information because of the differences in people’s personalities, tone of voice, etc. In these cases snippets of information may be overlooked and the new members of staff are not receiving all of the relevant information.

Excess of Information: The new members of staff can be overloaded with information in their first few days and weeks of starting the new position. In many cases the employees are exposed to a large volume of information which can be too much to take in. In these cases, crucial induction messages will not be absorbed and retained.

Dulann’s Solution

We understand that training needs to be consistent, contractors need to be scheduled and rescheduled, rooms need to be booked, paperwork needs to be organised, and none of which is very effective. Immediate operational needs often mean that not every contractor can be met and inducted in person before they reach site. Corners are cut more often than you think. Our online training;

Saves Time: Managed online and available 24/7 from any location, dulann allows contractors the opportunity to complete their induction before they ever set foot on site. When they arrive on site they are ready to start work without any downtime. Your information is now managed in a central location, available in real time to anyone with appropriate access rights and is also fully transparent. Gone are the days of excel spreadsheets being updated once a week and gone are the days of someone leaving your company with all the induction history.

Improves Information Retention: Dulann provides you with the most innovative and engaging inductions. Cognitive learning theory applied to a SCORM compliant learning management system increases long term memory retention by your contractors. Video inductions that are both expensive to make and expensive to update are a thing of the past. The reality is that no one ever learnt anything by sitting through a 2 hour training video.

Saves Money:  A substantial cost is involved in employee inductions. Contractors need to be scheduled and rescheduled, rooms need to be booked, paperwork needs to be organised, trainers need to be paid, food and beverages provided etc. With Dulann’s online training the course can be taken at a time, a place and a pace that suits you. Our course can be interrupted at any time and then continued from where you left off.
