  1. 1. BUDDY PROGRAM  By Vipul Saxena !
  2. 2. Objectives of Buddy Program Induction and Orientation Programs are conducted so that new employees feels at home. This also mean helping them understand our organizational Policies and culture. Mostly a new employee is less confident and feel insecure relating with their colleagues - senior, peer or junior. Not knowing what’s ''right'', or what’s ''accepted here'', can make the new employee confused and hesitant in interpreting the responses of others. These concerns of new employee pale into insignificance, however, compared with the sheer confusion of not knowing what’s ''normal'' in the organization as to what’s ''right'' and ''wrong'' here - what’s expected of me - what’s the company’s culture?
  3. 3. Buddy program is a tool to accelerate the new employee’s ability to deal with the early disconcerting issues. By implementing Buddy Program it is intended that:  The new employee feels at home with the company, in a quick process;  Straightforward queries regarding basic operational issues are dealt with in a timely and non-bureaucratic manner;  The initial confusion and uncertainty faced by all new employees is reduced;  Other orientation activities, such as classroom and on job training (OJT) can be related to actual real-world activities and resulting basic queries can be resolved;  New employees find out how to 'manage' us, the company, in a supportive and risk-reduced environment;  Manger / supervisor time with new employees is reduced to deal with added value issues;  New employee begins to add value more quickly, leading to increased confidence & self-esteem; Buddy program provides one-point contact to operationally necessary information. In essence, the development / performnace of the individual is not an expected output from Buddy Program.
  4. 4. Who is Buddy ?  BUDDY" is one who partners with a new employee during their first Six months of employment.  A Buddy can be given more than one new joinees too.  The BUDDY offers advice and guidance to help foster and promote the professional development of a new employee in initial days. He is generally a superior performer and have good people skills.  The BUDDY being highly motivated and efficient employee , he can be an effective source of advice and encouragement. The BUDDY can offer seasoned experience in the form of training and socializing the new employee to the work place.  BUDDY should have personality that will impress and persuade the new employee that he is someone whom he can trust. His role is to allow for a comfortable, more informal environment in which the employee can ask and receive information about the office culture and norms and those everyday, mostly unwritten, procedures and policies that help to explain how things
  5. 5. Criteria for Selection of BUDDY Buddy is someone who has :  Has patience and good communication and interpersonal skills.  Has understanding and commitment to the Company's mission, goal and values.  Is proud of the organization.  Demonstrates high performance.  Is a positive role model who is well regarded and accepted by current employees.  Is skilled in the new employee’s job.  Is a peer of the new employee.  Is given time to be accessible to the new employee.  Preferably, has been employed more than one year.
  6. 6. Role and Responsibility of BUDDY  BUDDY’s responsibility is to help establish a sense of belonging for the new employee. With an effective BUDDY, new employee will quickly become a contributing member to his or her new department.  Buddy is not the new employee's manager or supervisor and will not be held responsible for new employee's performance. If queries arise regarding performance, disciplinary or policy matters, while Buddy is free to give his opinion and advice on how to approach the matter, Buddy is not authorised to adjudicate or resolve the matter. New employee must be directed to their manager or supervisor for resolution of the relevant professional issues.
  7. 7. Buddy is to :  Be an informational resource for the new employee on policies, procedures, work rules, norms, etc.  Help socialize the new employee.  Assist in training the new employee.  Be a tour guide.  Identify resources.  Provide introductions. Buddy’s first meeting with the new employee After Buddy’s name and name & other relevant information of the new employee has been ciculated, he will be working with, it is up to Buddy to contact with new employee at the earliest available opportunity. This may be on their first day or if they are involved in orientation training on first day, Buddy may arrange meeting new employee over lunch or otherwise on that day.
  8. 8. Contents of meetings and discussions  Buddy’s first meeting with new employee should be introductory in nature. He should take him around all the departments, introduce them to their colleagues, and direct them to there work station/cabin. He would also explain him operation of an equipment or system they need in order to commence work. Buddy need to be familiar with the content of the orientation training, so that they do not duplicate any training being provided there.  Buddy should inform the new employee his contact details, and make it clear that he is available to them as & when required. Buddy should infiorm them that he will be meeting them regularly, and that non-urgent issues should be defered until those times. However, if any bottleneck that is materially hindering their work or performance can be discussed with him immediately.  Buddy must ask them if they have any initial queries or issues, and resolve them and leave the new employee to get on with their assignment. Buddy need to remember, his role is to help the new employee get on with the task at hand and not to prevent them from doing so.
  9. 9. Frequency and timing of meetings  Buddy must meet the new employee regularly for at least 15-20 minutes, once a week during their first month and at least once a month thereafter. This meeting is often best conduct over lunch or in an informal setting, and used to discuss any non-urgent issues the new employee may have.  During the working day, it may be reasonable to expect as many as 3 - 5 brief queries a day from the new employee in the first few days, reducing down to one or two a day thereafter.  Although every new employees is different, however after 2-3 months, you may hear little or nothing from them on a daily basis. IT WILL BE A GOOD SIGN. If Buddy is getting large number of 'urgent' queries even after first month, It is a pointer to bottle necks in the system which Buddy must resolve by meeting new employee and relevant Deptt head/heads.  It is expected that Buddy and the new employee meet during working hours. Sometimes, Buddy and new employee agree to meet on a social basis, outside working hours. This is an entirely a
  10. 10. Expectations of the Company from the Relationship  Relationship between Buddy and the new employee should be open, confidential, positive and supportive.  All queries raised during their discussions should be confidential. The company neither has interest in knowing the details of any discussions between Buddy and the new employee, nor in monitoring Buddy relationships.  The Company expects the relationship to be supportive to the company and new employee. Buddy must avoid giving his view/opinion on a issue not known to him or about any existing employee’s professional matter / personal life which can be termed as gossip and may become rumour, particularly as many new employees are not in a position to form an opinion on most issues during their early months.
  11. 11. What a new Employee Expects from BUDDY ?  General advice.  General Guidance.  Encouragement.  Positive attitude of BUDDY.  Shared information/query is kept confidential.  Honest feedback.  Clear information.  Help in understanding the culture of an organization and finding out how to get things done.  Assistance in building networks and insight into how to make them effective and productive.  Establishment of the best form of communication -- e-mail, telephone, in-person.
  12. 12. Tips for Buddies  Be patient and positive. It takes time to develop a relationship. Don’t try to cover everything right away. Buddies need to allow enough time for growth.  Don’t try to force a relationship.  Look for a preferred style of communication and/or cultural identification  Don’t try to turn the new employee into your clone. That person may have a different style from yours. Let the new employee develop.  Listening may be more important than giving advice.  Don’t be judgmental.  Don’t lose heart because of a new employee’s failures. You cannot always ensure success, but you can help that person to begin again more intelligently. You can help them see a failed experience as valuable by honestly identifying where it went wrong. Buddies can often prevent failure from happening to a new employee a second time.  Keep a good attitude and stay in a teaching spirit.  Don’t worry about being perceived as the "expert." Your experience is important to the new employee.
  13. 13. Termination of Relationship  The Buddy relationship between you and the new employee will be terminated if either:  Three months expires, or on request by either party.  The Buddy relationship operates under a 'no-fault' termination mechanism. This means that if either the Buddy or the new employee so requests, the Buddy relationship immediately ends. The new employee is allocated another Buddy, and the Buddy can be allocated to a different new employee.“NO EXPLANATION WILL BE SOUGHT OR OFFERED, NO DISCUSSION/BLAME WILL FOLLOW.
  14. 14.  Submission of Reports to HR Department  On Termination of Relationship, Buddy must file a Report to the HR Deptt in a prescribed without revealing exact details of the query by the new joinee, so that HR system can reduce the concerns for future new joinees.  Benefits to Buddies  Give something back to your Department.  Share accumulated knowledge and experience for organisation growth.  Gain a better understanding of yourself through helping others.  Maintain or create a fresh perspective.  Helps him Groom him as Leader.  Rewards /Awards for BUDDY  HR Deptt monitors the performance of BUDDY in terms of efforts and pain taken by the Buddy in achieving the Objective of the Buddy Program and give due consideration at an appropriate opportunity. Questionaire for Buddy on completion of assignment While answering the questionnaire you are advised not to reveal exact detail/situation that new employee shared these with you.
