Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation starts on the first day of hire and ends with the completion of the introductory period. During this time the new employees receive the necessary information to be successful in their various positions.

Orientation consists of both centralized and department specific training. On day one, the new employee is welcomed in a group together with others who are also starting. This full day consists of the following:

  • Mission, Vision and Values
  • Embracing Excellence
  • Ethics, Rights and Responsibilities
  • Accreditation by Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
  • Infection Control
  • Corporate Compliance
  • Risk Management
  • Overview of Policies, Performance Appraisal and Benefits

During the introductory period, the new employee will begin the process of understanding the job role and its responsibilities.

A department specific orientation is provided for each employee to assure that the knowledge and skills required to do the job successfully have been gained during this time. Following the introductory period, the employee achieves regular status.
