Organizations face a myriad of challenges when developing programs to support new employees' orientation. Welcoming new employees to an organization involves more elements of learning and integration than just handing them a manual and letting them sink or swim. This project provides a foundation for an on-boarding model and application of its program design that is firmly based in secondary literature. Methods of investigation for this project are secondary data located in journals, articles and books and one organization's website with documents located in the public domain. The data will be assessed in order to design an onboarding program to support new employees' orientation in that particular organization. It is imperative that an onboarding program ensures new employees are prepared to become productive members of an organization as quickly and efficiently as possible to ensure consistent services. A priority for many organizations is to become the employer of choice by making positive lasting impressions on new employees and affect its ability to reach its short and long-term goals. A blended learning delivery for the program will be created, incorporating the best practices of various onboarding, socialization and orientation programs. The goal of this project is to create an onboarding program that supports an organization's need to build a solid, productive, and lasting work relationship with newly hired employees. --Leaf ii.
