The first few days at a new job — even if it
is with a familiar organization — can be intimidating, overwhelming, and downright scary. New
employees are hoping to make a good impression, feel welcome, and make a smooth transition into their
new roles. The organization and involved staff have an important responsibility in meeting the
expectations of new hires and to communicate what is expected, how processes work, and who can provide
information and answers to questions.
Key goals for meeting the needs of both the
employer and employee include creating a resounding welcoming feeling during the orientation process,
minimizing the learning curve for the new employee, and shedding a positive light on the organization.
Additionally, it's imperative that the rules, policies, and legalities of employee orientation are
conveyed, discussed, and followed.

orientation to a new hire can seem time-consuming and difficult for everyone involved. Like anyone
else involved in the hiring process, you probably have the best intentions of taking on this task and

your employee orientation process is the best it can be. Learn tips, techniques, and strategies for

of experience level, all new employees have concerns and reservations when entering a new role, and
it's just as important for the organization as it is for the employee that orientation is a positive,
productive experience for everyone involved.
