Onboarding Training

There is a difference between orientation and onboarding employee training. Orientation is usually related to human resources and is done at the first week of employment. It covers a wide variety of general information that employees need to know, like company culture and employees’ benefits.

On the other hand, onboarding typically is department specific and covers information over a longer period. Onboarding’s goal is to enable new employees to become successful in their roles in an efficient way.  

Onboarding trainings often start on the first day of employment and might even be part of a year-long program depending on the company. It is often prepared by department heads who focusing on departmental goals as they relate to overall company objectives. Topics are usually designed to provide employees with information and skills that they need to do their jobs efficiently.

Many companies have a safety presentation prepared as part of their onboarding program. It typically covers the company safety policies and expectations. It will cover safety culture and all safety roles and responsibilities. This onboarding will often also include accountability expectations if an employee fails to follow safety protocols.
