New employee orientation—also known as onboarding—is the process by which you introduce a new employee to your staff and management, as well as to the workplace environment. orientation_onboarding.jpg

Your goal is to familiarize your new employee with the company and create a positive first impression. Employee orientation can also be used for employees who are promoted within your company and need a similar type of program.

An Effective Onboarding Program:

•    Familiarizes the new employee with the company
•    Creates a positive first impression
•    Increases staff retention and productivity
•    Opens dialogue for questions
•    Reinforces company qualities you conveyed in the interview


Absence of an Effective Program Can Result In:

•    Miscommunication
•    Confusion
•    Poor performance
•    Lost business
•    Dissatisfied employees
