Abstract

This study was conducted to measure perceptions of program participants in a large medical center in West Palm Beach, Florida, and to determine the degree to which their participation in the training and orientation program led to 1) greater workplace effectiveness and 2) reduced employee turnover. The results revealed that well-run employee training and orientation programs are not only cost effective, but they also add to the overall quality of life and work in organizations.
