Employee Orientation Design Training
Creating Effective Orientation Programs
- One Day
- Two Days
Employee On-Boarding Course Overview
Getting the most out of employees is more than conducting performance reviews or disciplining staff. Performance management begins with an orientation to the organization and the job and continues on a daily basis as employees are trained and coached.
A thoughtful new-employee orientation program, coupled with an employee handbook that communicates workplace policies, can reduce turnover and save an organization thousands of dollars. Whether your company has two employees or a thousand, don't leave employee retention to chance. Give them what they need to feel welcome, know why they were hired, and know how to do the job.
At this program's conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Understand how important an orientation program is to an organization
- Identify the role of the human resource department in the orientation program
- Recognize how the commitment curve affects both new employees and their managers
- Know what companies can do to deliver their promise to new employees
- Determine the critical elements of effective employee training
- Establish the importance of having an employee handbook for new and long-term employees.
