Orient New Team Memebers: Starting Off on the Right Foot

It is essential that new employees be given the attention and understanding they need to succeed on the job. Effective orientation can facilitate the employee's first weeks on the job and help to become an effective team member more quickly. This module helps participants:
  • Develop orientation goals
  • Set forth an action plan and timeline
  • Use a checklist to assure continuous feedback and coaching

This module provides skills to managers who want to give new team members a quick start.

This module can be presented in two to four hours, depending on participants' skill level and teaching objectives. The module includes:

  • Break out groups to solve team problems
  • Discussion on techniques for team development
  • Exercises and presentations
  • Practice sessions and role plays
The participant's workbooks contain reference text and exercises, are bound and three hole punched. The module is divided into three sections, one for each phase of training: the Pre-Workshop Assignment, the Workshop Material, and the Post-Workshop Action Items. Participant's workbooks can be used for classroom instruction or on a self-paced basis.

The leader's guide contains the same material as the participant's workbook, with the addition of a section of introductory notes, answers to exercises and explanatory margin notes. The leader's notes contain tips and techniques on setting up and administering the session, checklists, and other teaching aids. Other beneficial components include:
  • A listing of suggested videos which complement the material.
  • Notes which highlight key points, provide tips for training, and detail competencies to be gained.
  • Margin Notes on the workshop materials which guide the leader through the material and indicate when to ask questions, encourage discussion, use flip charts, break into groups, and refer to specific material.


By the end of this module, the participants will be able to:

  1. Describe their role in the orientation process.
  2. Identify types and sources of orientation available.
  3. Create an employee orientation mentoring plan.
  4. Plan an effective orientation session.
  5. List benefits of our effective orientation process.
