Employee On-Boarding
Employee Onboarding is the process of integrating employees into their new work environment and overseeing their progress during that critical first year. It is the last stage of the recruitment process and is the first step toward retention. It goes beyond the orientation program and is the process of aligning, assimilating, integrating, and transitioning a new employee by focusing on:

  • a strong employer welcome
  • affirming the employee’s right choice in a job
  • affirming that the employee fits into the organization
  • building a long-term employment relationship

Your employees make a commitment to you and your organization when they accept an offer of employment. At the same time, you have made a commitment to them as a valued part of your workforce. . Orientation is an introductory stage in the onboarding process of new employee and must be a component of the on-boarding process. However, many organizations stop at the employee orientation and conclude any formal program within the first few weeks of employment.

Employee Orientation Programs
Orientation programs serve as an important element of the recruitment and retention process. Many employers may recognize this and may even categorize their practice of giving new employees a handbook and having required forms completed as an “orientation program.” But at Clavum we know the benefits and value a good orientation program brings to an organization, and our Orientation


  • Reduced Startup Costs – Good orientation programs help new employees get up to speed quicker, thereby reducing the costs associated with learning the job.
  • Reduced Anxiety – Good orientation programs help to reduce anxiety that results from entering into an unknown situation, and help provide guidelines for behavior and conduct so new employees don’t have to experience the stress of guessing.
  • Reduced Employee Turnover – Employee turnover increases when employees feel unvalued, or are placed in positions that impede job performance. Good orientation programs show that the organization values the employee and helps provide the tools necessary for successful performance.
  • Reduced Supervisor Time: The better the initial orientation, the less likely supervisors and co-workers will have to spend time teaching the employee, costing additional production downtime.
  • Increased Clarity of Job Expectations, Positive Attitudes and Job Satisfaction: It is important that new employees learn as soon as possible what is expected of them, and what to expect from others, in addition to learning about the values and attitudes of the organization. If the employee feels well informed and isn’t met with surprises, increased positive attitudes and job satisfaction will occur thereby increasing their desire to give their best efforts to the employer.

Let Clavum invest the time needed to ensure your recruitment efforts pay off, planting the right seed from the beginning with effective orientation!
