Starting a new job or role is intimidating, no matter who you are, whether you are just starting out or are already well established in your career. Often on day one or week one, it’s all about reading – either a massive folder of documents or a website.

There has to be a better way.

I bow to the experience of my colleague, James Cattell @JACattell. James is one of the cool guys in the UK government who uses all the latest online tools. He is also one of those friendly guys who walks around and talks to people. So when he writes about his experience of induction for a new role in a digital team, I listen and so should you.

His blog post is called Inductions for teams, not just organisations

It will give you an insight in how to make someone feel welcome and how some of the latest online tools are being used in an office environment.
