It’s common knowledge in the for-profit business sector that an effective orientation process is crucial for a lot of reasons.

Refining an orientation process is ongoing. Be sure to keep records of what works and where you need to provide more information in the future so you can continually improve. Here are five tips to get you started on refining your plan.
