Beginning of the employment relationship

Careful induction of a new employee is a crucial part of occupational well-being and enjoyment of work. It is the duty of the employee’s superior and the organisation to induct the new employee.

The Tampere higher education community offers an induction programme lock that allows new recruits to learn more about their employer, gives them the necessary information about the employment relationship and organisation and provides them with additional role-specific orientation.

The induction programme covers the following themes:

  • Induction to the employment relationship and organisation (Tampere University)
  • Job specific and unit induction
  • Additional job-specific induction:
    • Induction of supervisors
    • Induction of teaching staff
    • Induction doctoral researchers
    • Laboratory induction

An induction session for all new teachers is held once per term. It is a platform for networking as well as for learning about the practical matters of teaching work and its key IT systems and other services. You can find more detailed information, including the dates and times of the orientation events, in the intranet staff training calendar lock (sign in with your TUNI credentials).

At Tampere University for new teaching staff is available For New Teachers lock checklist, which includes information, instructions, and links to help you get started.
