Orientation and Training of New Employees

Orientation is a process that effectively integrates the new employee into your organization. It assists with retention, motivation, job satisfaction, and allows new staff members to become contributing members of the work team quickly and efficiently.

Onboarding is the process of acquiring, accommodating, assimilating, and acculturating new team members, whether they are from outside or inside the organization. Effective onboarding of new team members is one of the most important contributions hiring managers or HR staff can do to provide long-term success of new hires. Done correctly, it ensures new employee productivity, accelerates results, and significantly improves talent retention.
