During this workshop, participants will design and develop successful new employee orientation and onboarding activities.


First impression is important! Many companies do not realize the importance of making a great first impression on new hires. Getting new employees off to a good start can make a big difference in their feeling welcomed and in their effectiveness on the new job.

Therefore, your new hire should attend a formal Employee Orientation Program.
