Orientation, or the lack of it, can significantly influence a new employee's performance, attitude, and sense of commitment. This course examines orientation from three perspectives: the organization's, the manager's, and the new employee's. Whether you're starting an orientation program from scratch or revising an existing program, this course will give you valuable tips on what to include in an orientation program, how to present it, and whom to involve in the process. You will tackle typical challenges associated with orientation and receive a variety of orientation samples and checklists.
