I’m always on the look out for neat little video clips I can use to bring ideas and concepts to life. I’ve just seen the latest McDonald’s TV ad for the first time and it looks a great way of getting across the concept of induction training.
Ask students to make a list of as many things as they can think of that they’d want or need to know on their first day in a new job. Then ask them to see how many on their list (and others they hadn’t considered) appear in this whirlwind introduction to a new workplace.
Then students can discuss how it might be done in a better way, so that bigger issues such as culture and company objectives are covered, not to mention that your employee doesn’t feel the need to rush off to McDonalds and collapse in their seat with a Big Mac Meal!
