What is Orientation?
Orientation is a part of the process of onboarding where a new employee is introduced to the organization. Successful orientation helps employees feel comfortable with the work and work environment, understand the expectations of employment, and reduce anxiety about the position. Orientation can include information about the company’s history and background, core values and mission statement. Employee expectations such as dress code and office hours are covered, as well as organizational culture information and ways that the employee can stay engaged in the position.
