Green Light Induction Programme – What to Expect

Green Light provides a structured induction program for all new starters. This induction blends online and workplace learning over the first three weeks of employment. A variety of interesting topics are covered by experts in their fields. By the end of your induction, we expect you to have a good understanding of the company culture, our aims, and the needs of the people Green Light supports. You should have an awareness of the expectations of your new role and how to be an effective team player.

We expect you to see positive relationships starting to form between you, your new manager, colleagues, and the people you and your team support. During the induction, you’ll meet fellow inductees and long-standing Green Light team members, all with valuable experience to share. By the end of your induction, you should have a good grasp of company policies and procedures (or at least know where to find them!) and how you can access any additional help or support needed to do your job well. You should finish your induction feeling welcome, prepared, and excited to support our mission: ’empowering people to lead a lifestyle they’re proud of.’
