Newly hired employees are seldom capable of fully performing their job duties. The gap between a new
employees abilities and the job demands may be substantial. An orientation program supplements the new
employee’s abilities and develops a balance between what the new employee can do and what the job
demands. Orientation programs familiarize new employees with their roles, organizational issues, and with
other employees. The orientation program helps an individual understand the social, technical and cultural
aspects of the new work place and thus acceptance into the work group. Consider the benefits of an
