Induction programmes are important to every organization. It helps in introducing the new employee of an organization by briefing the new employees on the organization’s vision, mission, values, and objectives. This study intends to determine the impact of induction programmes and compare the level of adaptation to new organizations based on the duration and content of induction training by using quantitative research with semi-structured interview questionnaires.  The perceptions of new employees on the induction training were gathered from all the new employees of University ABC, who have joined the university within four years (2019,2020, 2021 and 2022). In addition, a convenience sampling technique was used in determining the sample size from the total population. A structured questionnaire was distributed to gather the perceptions of new employees. The results show that induction training has a positive impact on the adaptation to the new work environment and individual work performance.
