Employee orientation helps to keep employees on board
11/11/2010 - Orienting employees to their workplaces and their jobs is one of the most neglected functions in many organisations. Judith Brown
An employee handbook and piles of paperwork are not sufficient anymore when it comes to welcoming a new employee to your organisation.
The most frequent complaints about new employee orientation are that it is overwhelming, boring, or that the new employee is left to sink or swim. The result is often a confused new employee who is not productive and is more likely to leave the organisation within a year. With an ongoing labor crunch, developing an effective employee orientation experience continues to be crucial. It is critical that new hire programs are carefully planned to educate the employee about the values, history and who is who in the organisation.
A well thought out orientation program, whether it lasts one day or six months, will help not only in retention of employees, but also in productivity. Organisations that have good orientation programs get new people up to speed faster, have better alignment between what the employees do and what the organisation needs them to do, and have lower turnover rates.
