Orientation Handbook – Giving Employees a Good Start

Course Details


A new employee orientation programme, coupled with an employee handbook that communicates workplace policies, can reduce turnover and save an organisation thousands of dollars.

One reason people change jobs is that they never feel truly welcome, or a part of the organisation they join. If a company spends considerable money recruiting, interviewing, and perhaps even relocating employees, it makes good sense to go one step further and make the new employee feel like they have made a good decision to come to this company. Whether your company has two employees or two thousand employees, don’t leave new employee orientation to chance.
