You’ve just hired a new account manager who’ll be starting in two weeks, and her employee orientation is fast approaching. When she gets here, she’ll no doubt be greeted at the front desk and shown to her office, but then what?
Will she be ushered into a windowless room to emerge eight hours later having gone through every policy, procedure and guideline in the employee manual? Will she be schooled on the company’s history and mission? Will she be forced to sign a never-ending pile of forms and sit through awkward “informational” videos made in the 80s?
