Employee Orientation (graded)
Employee orientation is handled differently in each organization. Let’s talk about this in both the theoretical perspective as well as in practical terms. Here are a few questions to get started.
- Should companies offer formal orientation programs for all new employees, or should they be designed and run by each individual supervisor, manager, or department head? (Support your answer.)
- Explain some purposes for having employee orientations.
- Give an example from your own experience of the first weeks on the job, either with or without an orientation program, and how you felt orientation helped you settle in (or, if you didn’t have an orientation, how that impacted your view of that job).
Pick one or two of the above to get started, and we will discuss further throughout the week!
