THE CHALLENGE

With the growing need of the business and the larger numbers of employees, contractors and job locations the demand for onsite inductions increased.  All the contractors, sub-contractors, permanent and part time workers had to be inducted into Sommer & Staff policies and safety procedures. The cost of running inductions kept on rising with a growing number of employees across country.

THE SOLUTION

Sommer and Staff managers started searching for a more efficient and cost effective way to run company inductions. One of their colleagues turned their attention to Induct For Work. After trialling the online induction system that was offered, it was decided by the managers that the interface of Induct For Work was very friendly intuitive and could cross multiple devices.
