Effective Employee Orientation Strategies
Ideally, your employee orientation events should serve several purposes. You want to welcome the new individual to the team in a way that will make them enthusiastic about joining the group. This period is also a time for them to adapt to the new environment, get a better insight as to the company culture and become familiar with internal policies and procedures.
From a practical standpoint, the employee orientation program should also provide important information that will help prepare the new employee for the demands of the job. If an employee feels overwhelmed or unappreciated right from the start, it will not establish an environment in which the person is motivated to perform at their best.
