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.
