Accountemps Survey: One in Three Employers Lacks Orientation Program for New Hires

Accountemps News Release (03/20/12)

According to a recent survey from Accountemps, 34% of 500 human resource managers surveyed say their companies do not offer a formal orientation program to help prepare new staff. However, 67% of small firms (20 to 49 employees) have a formal orientation program, compared with 52% of large companies (1,000 or more employees). HR executives whose companies offer an orientation program say the greatest benefits of the program are that new employees: better understand the company’s values, guidelines, and expectations (35%); make positive contributions more quickly (20%); feel a connection with the company more quickly (19%); and are better prepared for long-term success with the company (17%).
