Orientation is an essential process when you start a new job, more so when it involves moving into a new community. By definition, orientation is a systematic approach used to welcome new employees and provide necessary information for the employee to become familiar with the workplace. The orientation process will give you an understanding of how the organisation works, your expected roles and responsibilities, and help you become familiar with your workplace and colleagues.

We have put together a brief overview of some of the key elements of orientation you should receive or seek out. Read each of the pages and think about how you can best engage in the orientation to your new role and community.
