Induction and Deployment:
One of the surest ways to retain and motivate the selected persons far a position(s) is to induct the person properly into the organisation to make the person get a feeling that he/she has come to the right organisation. The steps involved in this process are:
• an orientation programme, conducted usually by the personnel division of the parent organisation;
• induction into the library /information centre by the head;
• introduction to the various sections/units/divisions of the library information centre; and
• introduction to the work that the person is assigned by the head of the unit.
An orientation programme is an informal introduction to the organisation in terms of the organisation's goals and objectives, its organisational set up, discipline, employee benefits, salary schedules, health and safety provisions, attendance, leave rules, holidays, grievance procedures, hours of work, lunch and coffee break, telephone facilities and such others that are not commonly known to a newcomer when the person joins a new organisation.
