A orientation program is more like a introduction program where newly joining employee is familiarized with the organization, its culture, its employees, geography, bosses and major projects on which organization is working currently. In this assignment different attributes of a orientation program like its activities, its duration, it’s costing, evaluation of the program and its effectiveness and its alignment with the long term goals and objectives of the organization would be discussed.
This program would be titled as “Welcome Home” program for all newly joining employees. Title of the program is kept in such a manner that employee would feel at ease and take program in a positive manner. This program would be both a welcome program along with an introductory lesson and getting to know each other program. This means this program would be a two way program and both employee and organization would know each other better during the program duration. This program is of 3 months duration and during this period there are various activities like lectures, practical sessions, social meets, in formal parties, group discussions, tours and formal meetings would be used to engage employee and indulge him in the two way process of familiarizing with program. Entire program would be conducted under the supervision of a HR manager who is a expert in training and development since last 15 years and being hired as a free lance trainer for organizations to conduct their orientation program.
Orientation program would begin immediately after the hiring process is over and it would take approximately 50-100 employees in one batch. Entire orientation program would be evaluated on a monthly basis and final grades would be given to each employee before they conclude the program. These grades will be kept as a record by organization for future reference of their employees. This orientation program would need 3 HR managers from the organization to join with the training expert and provide him all the details of organizational needs and requirements along with a brief profile of each employee. This will help in modifying the program in such a manner that it will suit to the needs of employees and organization perfectly.
