  • Reduced Anxiety

Good orientation programs helps to reduce anxiety that results from entering into an unknown situation, and help provide guidelines for behavior and conduct so that the new employees need not to experience the stress of guessing

  • Reduced Employee Turnover

Employee turnover increases when employees feel unvalued, or are placed in positions that impede job performance. Good orientation programs show that the organization values the employee and helps provide the tools necessary for successful performance

  • Reduced Supervisor Time

The better the initial orientation, the less likely supervisors and co-workers will have to spend time teaching the employee, costing additional production downtime

  • Increased Clarity of Job Expectations, Positive attitude and Job Satisfaction

It is important that new employee learn as soon as possible what is expected of them, and what to expect from others, in addition to learning about the values and attitudes about the organization . If the employee feels well informed and is not met with surprises, increased positive attitudes and job satisfaction will occur thereby increasing their desire to give their best to the employer.
