New Employee Orientation Overview

After successfully making a hiring decision, you must ensure your new hire feels welcome and committed to staying with your company for the long haul. The process of orientation and onboarding is the first step toward securing a lasting employment relationship.

Orientation vs. Onboarding

In addition to critical components such as consistency, managerial involvement, and ongoing focus, you should think about ways to get across important information in a relatively fun and digestible manner.
