Transform your organization's orientation program­­and get your newest employees off to a flying start­­with the best practices, tips, tools, and guidelines in Creative New Employee Orientation Programs.

Many companies have an orientation process that addresses the paperwork issues but does not include vital information about the company's products and services, culture, policies, customers, safety issues, and so forth. This book is designed to help those who are responsible for their organization's orientation process by providing unique and creative ways to make orientation special, memorable, and effective.
