Three new people management case studies

4 August 2015

Three new people management case studies are now available. The resources offer useful tips and guidance for organisations implementing or reviewing female safety and security training programmes, staff induction and orientation programmes, and programme exits.

Case study: The Union – Introduction of a new staff induction and orientation programme

In 2013, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) enhanced its orientation agenda to include pre-and post-joining guidelines and material. The orientation process ensures new staff feel welcomed into The Union Family; are adequately integrated in the organisation, and receive support from their line supervisor and other staff members. This case study includes the rationale, process, challenges, lessons learned, and results and impact.

Case study: TEAR Australia – Female safety and security training programme

Programme officers at TEAR Australia, of whom 40% are women, undertake regular monitoring visits to projects overseas where staff are likely to encounter a range of challenging situations. To deal with this, the leadership team decided to plan a female safety training course for women travelling for TEAR. This case study examines the programme need, planning, facilitating factors, and anticipated outcome.
