New Employee Orientation

I am beginning with my master thesis. The subject is developing a New Employee Orientation (NEO) design:
- What topics should be included in NEO?
- Why is NEO an important issue to address?
- Who is responsible for NEO?
- Giving a timeframe for an international company.
- Which theories (articles, authors, books) would be relevant in your opinion?
HR theory books which I have found have just one paragraph about the issue but not more than that. Could you please point me to right direction how to approach the subject?
The topic is so interesting and important to a company, don't you think. Thanks for your replies and thoughts!

New Employee Orientation

Try the following: www.psc.gov.yk.ca/pdf/orientation__guide_2009_revised_march.pdf
www.employeeorientation.gov.ns.ca/employee-orientation-program-guidelines; and hrweb.berkeley.edu/guides/managing-hr/recruiting-staff/new-employee.
You will find that there is a lack of literature available, yet many organizations acknowledge there is a need to successfully orient new employees.
Some organizations I have worked for set up a 'buddy' program and have a year long orientation. Simply following a checklist and completing the orientation in 15 minutes will not work. Good luck on your masters. Please note, while 12manage is a great site, you may find many members expect graduate students to do their own research.

Why New Employee Orientation is Important

This is a very good topic for discussion. NEO is very important for any company regardless of its size, because: - It gives a first impression to an outsider / new joiner with respect to the company'...
