Board Member Induction Programme

New board members will want to contribute to the organisation as quickly as possible. A well thought out induction programme will help them ‘hit the ground running’. The purpose of this board briefing is to help you consider what needs to be included in your induction programme.

What is the purpose of the induction programme?

An induction programme is a structured way of providing new board members with all the information and support they need to be confident and productive in their role. The aim is to help new members to understand the organisation, the environment in which it operates, and their role in making the organisation a success.

What is involved in an induction programme?

An induction programme can last for between a few months and a year, depending on scale and complexity of the organisation.  It will involve:

  • Welcoming the new board member and introducing them to the board team and other key personnel, including the CEO and executive directors of each functional area of the company
  • An introduction to the strategic plan and financial position of the organization
  • An introduction to the governance arrangements which are in place
  • Meeting with key stakeholders where relevant
  • Regular reviews with the chair to check understanding, identify issues and encourage development

What are the steps involved in developing an induction programme for board members?

It is important that the induction plan is in place before the new board member begins. Doing so presents a professional image of the organisation, and is very reassuring for the new board member. An induction pack, which contains all the key documents required by board members, should be produced. It is the responsibility of the chair to work through the induction pack with all new board members.

In addition to familiarizing the new board members with the documents, the induction should be used to introduce them to the culture of the organisation and their role and responsibilities as a board member.

It may also involve identifying training and development needs to ensure the board member can contribute effectively to the organisation.
