Supporting new starters and newly qualified staff


A collection of resources to help organisations support new starters and newly qualified staff to improve staff retention.

Supporting new starters is crucial in retaining staff. By focusing on initiatives such as induction, preceptorship, welcome packs, benefit schemes and improved recruitment, many trusts have improved the retention of their newly appointed staff. 

In some cases, trusts ‘narrowed the front door to close the back door’, meaning by having more discerning recruitment processes and hiring based on trust values, they appoint staff that are more likely to buy into the culture and stay for longer.
