I see a difference in the terminology:
- Induction is like the welcoming ceremony
- Orientation is the general introduction to the organization and the job by HR staff, and
- Onboarding is the training/indoctrination of employees by the department to forge a lasting relationship with the employee.
Others may disagree and see induction and onboarding as part of the orientation process. See www.usq.edu.au/hr/odt/inductonboard/inductguidelines.
You'll have to research the theories to connect the terms.
