Create an agenda for New Employee Orientation at School.

The objective of this assessment is to demonstrate your understanding of how the human resource function interacts with other functions in the organization.

Create an agenda for New Employee Orientation at School. The orientation should last one full day. The new employee will meet with representatives from: HR, Finance, Information Technology and the school administrator.

Set up a schedule and time for each meeting. Give each meeting a subject title and short description.

The description of the meeting should provide in detail the pertinent information the new employee will learn from each representative.


            Staff orientation is highly prioritized within the Southwood Schools. The process aims at bringing up to speed and align the new employee to the school motto Together Everyone Achieves More and Achieve, Create Enjoy (Robson, 2009; Southwood School, 2012). It also introduces the new staff to the dynamic Southwood Schools environment that is comprised of students, teaching staff, non-teaching staff, and parents, among other players who directly or indirectly impact on our programmes (Robson, 2008; Southwood School, 2015). This one-day orientation agenda seeks to guide new staff in the operations of different units and departments (Human Resources – HR, Information Technology- IT, finances and administration). The agenda also includes the time, venue, and aim of the meeting at different stages.

            Pre-orientation preparation

In this phase, the new staff is informed by the human resources department of the day, location and time of the orientation meeting. The orientations are either conducted individually or in group form depending on the number of new employees.
