Mentoring New Employees: Buddy Program
In our endeavour to provide a comfortable and supportive work environment to a new recruit while he/she gets adjusted to the new workplace, CSC India has launched an initiative called Buddy Program, where each new employee is assigned a Buddy. The Buddy supports the new recruit through the initial few difficult weeks, helping him/her to settle in, adjust and discover more about our organisation and culture.
Through this program, we fulfill two main objectives. The first is to provide the new employee with a point of contact for general queries regarding day-to-day operational issues such as location of facilities, relevant company policies, etc. The second objective is to help the new employee integrate with the company by providing him/her access to someone who is familiar with our culture, attitude and expectations.
Through this program, CSC India hopes to alleviate the stress new employees normally endure in an unfamiliar workplace. The role of a Buddy is open to all employees who have been with CSC India for at least six months.
