This week marks the first of my time within the company. As expected The initial days are to be spent completing an induction phase. Day one consisted of a greeting with a member from HR and a welcome pack which included all necessary details for access to the companies profiles and servers of which they had set up for myself and one of my classmates, whom also is completing his internship with the company.
After initial presentations and some settling in time we were introduced to their employee management and tracking system Agresso. Within this system employees can submit, view, and alter personal details, time sheets, and also more interestingly they can input any further skills of qualifications they have that may be of future use to the company. This skills database I have found to be an impressive tool to utilize as it is my first time coming across such a simple yet highly efficient structure like this. once registration was completed we then began on the self learning aspect of the induction which took place by way of multiple choice quizzes which directly referenced the protocol, guidelines and work instructions found on the company database. These quizzes ranged from general health and safety and employment law to application of company specific protocols and software.
It has only been 2 days so far but it already has been highly informative and interesting. All staff are highly accommodating and I look forward to working with them over the coming months.
