Training Magazine reports that only 4% of the companies they surveyed do not provide new employee orientations. This activity deals with orientation and is comprised of two (2) parts. Your Activity responses should be both grammatically and mechanically correct and formatted in the same fashion as the Activity itself. If there is a Part A, your response should identify a Part A, etc. In addition, you must appropriately cite all resources used in your response and document them in a bibliography using APA style.
Part A Through research, identify five (5) companies that provide new hire orientations and write a report that describes what each of the five (5) companies covers in its orientation. At least one (1) of the five (5) companies should be one that you research through a telephone interview, research through a personal visit, or know from personal experience. (Use Delta Air Lines for personal experience). This report should include objectives, schedules/outlines, etc., to convey what these organizations stress in new employee orientations. In addition, include noted best practices activities that personally impress you.
Part B Create a training program identifying the main topics that you think should be covered in a new employee orientation for an existing or imaginary company. Be specific. Your training program should include an outline of topics, schedule, five (5) course learning objectives, and what you consider the best delivery method.
