Orientation Training Program for New Employees

Orientation is the pre-job phase of training. It introduces each new employee to the job and workplace as soon as he or she reports to work. The primary purpose of orientation is to tell new staff members what they want to know and what the company want them to know. Idaman Development Corporation (IDC) was incorporated on the 01st January 2009 to undertake the development of Idaman area of Taman Ibukota. IDC focuses to plan, develop, maintain and administer all the developments in the area designated as Taman Ibukota in Gombak. As we know that new employees will suffer from a significant amount of unease during the first few days on the job as they find themselves in an environment and culture that they are not familiar with. Those with little job experience may find it especially difficult without orientation since they have little other experience on which to base their expectations.
