Course description+

Trainers who regularly deliver training in best practices and human resources will get lots of positive feedback when they effectively facilitate Orientation Handbook: Getting Employees off to a Good Start. In this two-day course, you’ll help human resources and in-house leaders to understand that managing employee performance is more than responding to problems, conducting performance reviews, or hiring staff; it starts with an orientation to the organization and the job, and continues on a daily basis as employees are trained and mentored.

Topics explored in this course include how important an orientation program is to an organization in terms of engagement, retention, and fiscal responsibility; identifying the role of the human resources department in orientation; exploring the commitment curve; determining critical elements of effective employee training; helping employees settle into their new environment and establishing relationships; and considering the value of an employee handbook for new and existing employees.

This interactive training course is supported by detailed training materials that include an instructor’s guide,a  student workbook, pre-formatted slides, a pre-assignment, assessments, recommended reading, suggestions for further development, a quick reference guide, and more. All training materials are easily customizable, or can be delivered exactly as presented. Download this courseware now, print what you need, and you’ll be ready to deliver Orientation Handbook: Getting Employees off to a Good Start in no time at all!
