Orientation Handbook: Getting Employees Off to a Good Start


In this course,  human resources and in-house leaders understand that managing employee performance is more than responding to problems, conducting performance reviews, or hiring staff; it starts with an orientation to the organisation and the job and continues on a daily basis as employees are trained and mentored.
