Purposes of Orientation

Employers have to realize that orientation isn't just a nice gesture put
on by the organization. It serves as an important element of the
recruitment and retention process. Some key purposes are:
  • To Reduce Startup Costs: Proper orientation can help the
    employee get "up to speed" much more quickly, thereby reducing the costs
    associated with learning the job.

  • To Reduce Anxiety: Any employee, when put into a
    new, strange situation, will experience anxiety that can impede his or
    her ability to learn to do the job. Proper orientation helps to reduce
    anxiety that results from entering into an unknown situation, and helps
    provide guidelines for behavior and conduct, so the employee doesn't
    have to experience the stress of guessing.

  • To Reduce Employee Turnover: Employee turnover
    increases as employees feel they are not valued, or are put in positions
    where they can't possibly do their jobs. Orientation shows that the
    organization values the employee, and helps provide the tools necessary
    for succeeding in the job.

  • To Save Time for the Supervisor: Simply put, the
    better the initial orientation, the less likely supervisors and
    co-workers will have to spend time teaching the employee.

  • To Develop Realistic Job Expectations, Positive Attitudes and Job Satisfaction:
    It is important that employees 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 of the organization. While
    people can learn from experience, they will make many mistakes that are
    unnecessary and potentially damaging. The main reasons orientation
    programs fail: The program was not planned; the employee was unaware of
    the job requirements; the employee does not feel welcome.

    Employee orientation is important - orientation provides a lot of benefits, and you can use feedback to make your orientations even better.
