Employee turnover is reduced because employees will develop a sense of belonging and comfort from an orientation program and hence are more likely to stay with the company. An orientation program would normally include an introduction to other workers, expectations for dress, attendance and behavior, employment conditions such as pay and hours, breakdown of job functions and safety regulations. From an insurance and legal compliance perspective, it is critical that safety regulations be clearly explained to new staff members. Career planning is the process by which a person’s values, strengths, weaknesses, interests, abilities and goals are matched to their career path. When assisting young managers to plan their careers, companies should be mindful that young people seek meaningful, challenging, assignments and so some companies have introduced fast-track programs so that these individuals can follow an accelerated career path. These programs allow for diverse, challenging, important assignments requiring a high level of responsibility from the young managers. This will encourage these managers to stay on for rapid career advancement, rather than moving to another organization.

In order for a training program to succeed trainees must not only understand but also remember what has been taught. The 8 principles of learning are goal setting, individual differences, active practice and repetition, whole-versus-part learning, massed-versus-distributed learning, feedback and reinforcement, meaningfulness and presentation and finally modeling . Modeling refers to learning through observation and then by actually doing it. So for example, if a company is training its employees how to sew; the training should include both a hands-on and a visual presentation portion. Goal setting clarifies
