Hi Nelly,

Orientation and Induction are entirely different things like:-

Induction Comes first and is followed By Orientation.

Induction is for shorter duration will Orientation is for longer.

Now comes the subject matter of Induction as well as Orientation ; Induction means introduction of the company as in the overall preview of company it's more in the form of presentations while Orientation is the practical overview of the company that is it includes introducing employee do diffent people of the organisation making him more familiar with everyone so that he get the idea that what kind of company he will be working for and generating a level of comfort within the organisaton.

I hope i am able to understand the difference btw Orientation and Induction still if you have any doubt please free to ask me any question.

Regards
Srishti

Hi!Srishti, I am new in this feild and wanted to know,how a company would go with induction procedure for max. 1 week.

Hi all.
As per me, I beleive these are the more accurate difference between orientation and induction.

Orientation is the introductory stage which familiarises the new employee to his/her new working environment by introducing aspects of the company such as:
Company mission
Quality and value statements
Organisation chart
Business objectives
Management
Workplace facilities
Work rules, regulations and policies
Employee benefits and incentives

Induction is the process of initiation into a new job or company by which a new employee learns about and becomes part of an organisation. Induction ranges from formal orientation programs to informal familiarisation and social events. Its overall purpose is to provide necessary information, facilities and motivation to assist the employee to adjust to the new work environment to learn the ropes and become productive on the job. It aims to help him/her to understand company's expectations and convey what he or she can expect from the job and the company. It encourages the development of loyalty and enthusiasm towards the company and gain employee commitment.

Orientation can be completed in a day or two and is much simpler to organise and conduct and is less time-consuming. Induction, on the other hand, involves ongoing, systematic training and support for new employees beginning before the first day of work and continuing throughout the first two or three years.
In other words, orientation is one small activity that takes place during an overall systematic long training process known as induction.

Dear nidhibhatnagar99

Congratulations on your First post !!
Despite being a member since Feb. '09, you waited patiently for a year to send an appropriate response; and what an amazing value-addition by precisely pointing out the difference between Induction and Orientation, and explaining both terms !!
Thank you for sharing such excellent inputs.

If we see the origin and dictionary meaning of both the words, the difference and significance becomes amply clear.

Induction comes from the Latin root inducere, meaning to bring in; to introduce;
One of the meaning of Orientation implies aligning or adjusting oneself or one's ideas/awareness with reference to a place/surroundings or circumstances.

Warm regards.

Hi!Srishti, i hope this check list willl help you madam.

Hello all,

Please learn from Raj Kumar Hansdah's post as to how to avoid plagiarism by indicating the source. There is no point in cutting and pasting information from the web without editing. I have sent a private mail to the person that has copied from a website.


Another appeal is for bloggers to search the web for the answer before posting general queries. For example, I searched the web and found a number of links at http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&sourc...90f0351a245477. One of them is http://dictionary.bnet.com/definition/orientation.html

Have a nice day.
