Hi Chitra, onboarding is a defined process in terms of submission of documents, new forms relating to the employment, statutory benefits, insurance etc to be filled up. Orientation is about familiarity of the organization, the business lines of the company, the awareness of the CXO’s, the business heads, deptment heads etc of the organization, awareness of the various policies.

As stated above, we need to see what is the area of improvement which need to be done in terms of a, b and c, also it is good to take feedback from the functional heads in terms anything specific to be added in the orientation and a feedback from the new hires in terms of what they expected in the OP and what they received, anything more they would like to add.

What are the characteristics of a good training program?

8 Likes

Very important Question. Training program can of 2 types (a) I know what to train upon and (b) I need to run an assessment to know exactly know what to train upon. Often, the mistake happens here as we end up doing training without the root cause or need to training in mind. Let us suppose we do not know what to train but we have a training to do, no worries, we should ask the concerned department in terms of the expected goal with timelines, then run an assessment and then basis the result of assessment, we should do the training and retaining program. Retain is important as data says only 60% is retained and put to application from training session to work
