Orientation
is the process of acquainting new employees with the organization.Orientation topics range from such basic items as the location of the company cafeteria tosuch concerns as various career paths within the firm.Hence we can say that induction or orientation is the process through which a newemployee is introduced to the job and the organization. In the words of 
 Armstrong,
 induction is "the process of receiving and welcoming an employee when he first joins acompany and giving him the basic information he needs to settle down quickly and startwork.
Objectives
 Induction serves the following purposes:
 Removes fears
: A newcomer steps into an organization as a stranger. He is new to the people, workplace and work environment. He is not very sure about what he is supposedto do. Induction helps a new employee overcome such fears and perform better on the job.It assists him in knowing more about:The job, its content, policies, rules and regulations.
The people with whom he is supposed to interact. .
 
The terms and conditions of employment. b.
Creates a good impression
:
Another purpose of induction is to make the newcomer feel at home and develop a sense of pride in the organization. Induction helps him to:Adjust and adapt to new demands of the job.Get along with people.Get off to a good start.Through induction, a new recruit is able to see more clearly as to what he is supposed todo, how good the colleagues are, how important is the job, etc. He can pose questions andseek clarifications on issues relating to his job. Induction is a positive step, in the sense; itleaves a good impression about the company and the people working there in the mindsof new recruits. They begin to take pride in their work and are more committed to their  jobs.c.
Act as a valuable source of information
: Induction serves as a valuable source of information to new recruits. It classifies many things through employeemanuals/handbook. Informal discussions with colleagues may also clear the fogsurrounding certain issues. The basic purpose of induction is to communicate specific jobrequirements to the employee, put him at ease and make him feel confident about hisabilities.
