Induction design consultants


I would like to have recommendations for consultants (to help me) to design an induction framework for my organisation oof 1,200 staff. I have done some research into current internal practice and what we have is inflexible and very paper based.
I would like to work with consultants who are specialists in this area and who can take on parts of the project from beginning (project planning/communication/research) to end (resource design/evaluation).
I would like to create a framework that is flexible enough to be useful to new staff, voluteers and consultants working with the organisation.
I would like the induction support materials to be available in a variety of formats – paper, PC, video etc… so that it meets the style and needs of the users.
I want… I want… I want… If you know anyone or a company to fit this bill, let me know.

    programme into your company. I believe that we can help you. We have
    experience in this field, especially where a company may be undergoing growth
    and change. Our experience with a company of 1000 staff, of which 80% were

    staff destined for technical and highly numerate work, through to customer
    service call centre personnel and general administrative staff and IT
    consultants. We have also introduced sales staff to a company ensuring that
    all joiners attained a basic level of understanding of the role they were
    undertaking and that they met a minimum level standard of knowledge.

    We have a flexible and consultative approach to the projects we undertake and
    enjoy complete project challenges. We favour all mediums of information
    delivery and have access to the latest multi-media training techniques and
