You should view induction as the final and crucial stage of the recruitment process. It doesn't begin and end on your new employee's first day with you - it starts at the beginning of your selection process and ends when your new employee is fully settled into their role.
The first day in a new job can be pretty overwhelming. The new employee is generally loaded down with much more information than they can digest in one go. It's all necessary - but the more that can be put in writing the better, as this gives the newbie a chance to check up on the details whenever they need to.
Remember, the sooner new employees are made to feel welcomed and equipped to fulfil their role, the sooner your organisation will reap the rewards of their skills and experience.
