Organizations continuously find themselves assessing what resources or tools that can be used to educate their employees. This may be due to the fact that organizations do not have clear ethics which can be communicated to employees. Therefore, this study examined how knowledgeable staffs are about the meaning and benefits of induction. It examined the main attitudes of workers towards induction/orientation to work and how induction programmes motivate staff to be committed to the organizational effectiveness. Descriptive research method was adopted for this study using two hundred and seventy one (271) valid questionnaires which were completed by academic and non-academic staff of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State Nigeria. The data collected were carefully analyzed using descriptive statistics to represent the raw data in a meaningful manner. The findings revealed that induction significantly influences staff attitude and behaviour towards organizational effectiveness. This means that well packaged induction programme will positively influence staff attitude. It was recommended that induction programmes should be reviewed and improved upon from time to time to earn employees loyalty and positive attitudes towards work
