Employee Orientation

Getting a new employee off to a good start can make a big difference in their feeling welcomed and in their effectiveness on the job.


Orientation (sometimes called onboarding) is the process of introducing new, inexperienced, and transferred workers to the organization, their supervisors, co-workers, work areas, and jobs.  Providing training and extra assistance during the initial period of employment is critical, regardless of the age of the employee.  Orientation helps each worker develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are necessary to perform their job.


A well structured Introduction and Orientation process fulfills a number of requirements, such as:


  • Reducing new employee anxiety as one enters a new and unfamiliar role/organization;
  • Developing clear and consistent understanding of roles, responsibilities and expectations relative to both task and maintenance functions and expectations;
  • Clarifying channels of communication and support, including avenues of access to information and guidance; and
  • Clarifying administrative requirements.


The purpose of the Introduction and Orientation process is to welcome a new employee and position each new employee for successful contribution to the well-being of the Organization.  The overarching goal is to provide a platform for accelerated evolution into a fully contributing member of the organization.
