Order company doctor to get worker in? (7)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'order' is the definition.
(I know that command is a more specific form of the action order)

'company doctor to get worker in?' is the wordplay.
'company' becomes 'com' (as in .com).
'doctor' becomes 'd' (eg in PhD, Doctor of Philosophy).
'to' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other) (I've seen this in other clues).
'get worker in?' becomes 'man' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'd' put after 'man' is 'mand'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for command that I've seen before include "Instruction, order" , "Order; dominate" , "Bidding" , "Fiat" , "Understanding" .)
