New Employee Orientation

Supervisor Orientation Toolkit

Introduction

What is orientation?
Orientation is the process of assimilating new employees into the workplace and providing the knowledge and tools for them to achieve success early on in their new jobs. A successful orientation will help your new employee transition into his/her new job and NSU's community.

Why is orientation important?
A comprehensive orientation process fosters positive working relationships that help new employees gain confidence and become productive quickly.

Orientation is your opportunity as a supervisor to set goals and expectations, train, develop, and introduce your new employees to the people and resources they will need to perform their job effectively and advance their careers at NSU.

Orientation improves overall engagement, performance, and retention through understanding of and connection to the job, your department, and NSU.
