Shaima Mohamed Alweswasi, a graduate from Open University Malaysia, conducted a thorough research regarding the importance of induction programs for new employees in both private and public sectors, including a comparison between the two sectors.
The study covers many aspects including benefits of induction programs, challenges faced by new employees when entering a new company and practical recommendations.
Acting CEO of Bahrain Polytechnic, Dr. Mohamed Al-Aseeri, supported the study written by Ms. Shaima, and admitted that training continues to play an important part in not only enhancing the employees’ knowledge, but the motivation that it generates.
“Ms. Shaima has come with a wealth of background on the academic and educational industry. She gave a great effort to collect the data and come up with this report.” said Dr. Al-Aseeri.
The methodology of the research involved meeting various companies in both private and public sectors regarding their approach with new employees.
The proposal addresses the constant need to implement induction training for the employees by designing a program which meets new employees’ needs and provide mandatory feedback regarding the program. This would likely result in an increased job satisfaction, commitment and loyalty level to their respective organization.
“We thank Ms. Shaima for her time to brief her study to us. Having seen her suggestions, we will take them into consideration.” concluded the Acting CEO.
