New Employee Orientation

Posted by Jennifer Simpkins

You hired a new employee, they are excited to start their new job, they show up their first day….now what? The first day on a new job is hard enough but before your new employee can get to work, they have important matters to take care of first. The sooner your new employee can complete their onboarding and other orientation activities, the sooner they can start being productive. Whether your new employee orientation involves videos, an interactive employee handbook, or an overview of your benefits package, an LMS can help you help your new employees feel right at home in your organization.
