New Employee Orientation Survey And Past Results  

In 1985 The Training Clinic recognized the fact that although nearly all organizations conduct a new employee orientation program, few believe that their program is interesting or involving for the employee. To learn more The Training Clinic initially conducted research on over 300 companies. These companies identified themselves as having good-to-excellent orientation programs. A research staff of three conducted a survey of these companies, collected samples of orientation handouts, conducted telephone interviews and attended selected programs.

That research revealed that there are 12 principles of successful orientation programs. From that information and research a one-day workshop on how to design and present an effective new employee orientation program was developed. That workshop has been presented to thousands of participants in the intervening years.  

To keep the workshop content fresh, we periodically conduct additional research with over 2000 organizations worldwide.
