A thoughtful new employee orientation program, coupled with an employee handbook that communicates workplace policies, can reduce turnover and save your organization thousands of dollars. Whether your company has two employees or a thousand employees, 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.


Learning objectives for participants include:

  • 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.

If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have paid for 3 delegates at least.
