Registered manager webinar: Leading induction for a positive workplace culture

Online

Induction is a critical time for anyone joining social care – it’s an opportunity for managers and leaders to embed organisational values and culture, as well as support that new person to set a positive ongoing career experience. Good quality induction significantly reduces turnover rates and reduces the time taken for someone to become effective and productive in their role. This improves their knowledge and confidence, positively impacting peoples’ experience of care from the beginning of their careers. This webinar will show managers and leaders that a quality induction doesn’t need to be complicated, it needs to be planned and considered, creating a genuinely supportive culture. A panel of providers will highlight the importance of enabling your expectations to be clear, goals and ambitions to be shared and ensuring newcomers feel welcome and important to the team. Join us to hear about practical ideas that you can consider in your own organisations, ways in which to effectively demonstrate evidence to the CQC, and how you can make a difference
