New Employee Training Programs

Most modern organizations have a fairly good blueprint for the recruitment and selection of their perspective employees; however, they lack an organized system of providing continuous training to upgrade skills of their workforce. Once an employee is hired the human resources department is generally responsible for ensuring that the employee receives all the training necessary to perform their work functions. New employee training programs include an orientation to the culture and organizational mission, vision and values. They also may include job specific training that is required for specific job functions.
