Employee Induction, Orientation and Onboarding. Do they Mean the Same?
tom hogglund, Student (Other), Sweden, Member
Hi all, the terms induction, orientation and on boarding are widely used when orientating new employees to the company and to the job. Is there a clear definition (somewhere in theory) of these terms or do they mean the same?
 

 
NEO Terminology

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.
