Employee Induction and Orientation, the words are often used synonymously though they are different in meaning and application.  Induction refers to the process of introducing a new comer to his employer/ company and work environment. An induction session, conducted on day one for a new joiner, usually through PowerPoint presentation and videos sessions lasts a few hours or day . Orientation on the other hand, is a well designed program which aims at reorganizing a new employee and making him accustomed to his department, job role and work culture. An orientation session may vary from 1 day to several days, depending on organizational and departmental requirement.
