Designing an Interactive Programme

Before you begin to design your new employee orientation programme, you

need to spend time upfront getting support, buy-in and participation from

others in the organization. You cannot design this programme in a vacuum —

you need to be clear about what the organization’s top management wants to

accomplish in a new employee orientation programme. Of course, you can

give them some guidance and direction by sharing what you already know

about the needs of new employees and the goals of successful programmes as

identified in current research.
