Why is the new-hire orientation an important process?
The employee orientation process is an important process for many reasons. It is a way of introducing the new hire to your organization as well as providing them with an overview how the organization operates. The effective orientation also serves to acclimate an employee as well as speed up the time it takes them to become a productive member of the organization or business, it can also increase the employee’s comfort level regarding their decision to join the organization or business (Joseph, C., 2014).
What are two benefits of a properly conducted orientation program?
The two benefits of the properly conducted orientation program helps employees gain and understanding of what is expected of them on the job. The first benefit is each business and organization has its own set of rules as well as policies regarding dress, attendance and conduct, what orientation does is make it clear what is and what is not acceptable. Employees also get a better sense of the organizational culture during this time so they will have a better understanding of what they need to do to fit in. The second benefit of properly conducted orientation period is where the employee gains more of an in-depth understanding of the employer’s fringe benefit program, as opposed to the brief overview they receive during the interview process. Smaller business may offer more than one option in area for example as health insurance, which a through explanation of this type of benefit option the employee makes a form informed decision (Prime Resources, 2014).
