1 New-Hire Orientation An Employee Communication Presentation Reviewed July 2013

2 ©SHRM 20082 Introduction Starting a new job can be an exciting and sometimes nerve- wracking experience, filled with questions and uncertainties of about how things are done in the new organization. Simple questions such as “When do I get paid?” and “Where is the break room?” can be addressed in new-hire orientation. This is the time to introduce the new employee to the organization’s mission, vision, culture, policies, benefits and, sometimes, even the company’s executive team.

This is a sample presentation that must be customized to include the employer’s own culture, programs and orientation experience. The suggested length of this program is a ½ day to ¾ day session with a mid-morning break and/or a lunch break. You may also want to seek the assistance of your Benefits, Payroll, Office and/or IT managers for particular sections of the presentation.
