Online Employee Orientations

Getting the best from the employees you hire starts with the new hire orientation. When done effectively, worksite onboarding and orientations can provide new hires with insight into the existing company culture, information on specific company policies and procedures, as well as a better understanding of what is expected from them.


Companies need to implement adaptive learning that can provide experienced workers with high-level updates, key information, and brand new knowledge while providing new workers all the in-depth information, background knowledge, and learning needed to get up to speed. Many companies are finding the solution in switching to online orientation software, which is not only adaptive but also accessible on mobile devices and computers. This approach is more engaging than one might think and is creating a phenomenal difference in the effectiveness of employee onboarding orientations.

Virtual Proctoring

To ensure that the orientation and testing are completed by the right person, our system offers virtual proctoring services. Virtual proctoring utilizes the capability of webcams to have employees provide identification. As the course plays, the software ensures the employee is the one who completes the course from beginning to end. Virtual proctoring also ensures no unethical attempts to cheat the system are committed, helping you weed out the unethical workers before they cause problems on site. In addition, you can use this technology to ensure employees are paying attention to the content being delivered.

Advantages of Online Orientations

Cost Effective

Moving your orientation online not only eliminates costs related to in-person training (e.g. travel, booking classrooms, instructors, etc.), but also increases productive time for employees by allowing them to complete the majority of their training off site. All of this can result in an impressive ROI.

Streamlines Processes

Taking orientations online is an easy way to streamline a previously bulky process. Your employee or contractor can fill in HR forms in the middle of the orientation and all the completed forms get sent directly to the correct departments.


In-person instructors may gloss over topics or spend too much time on others. With online content, information remains consistent. You can rest assured that every new employee is arriving on site with the same training experience.


With online orientations, employees can complete their onboarding anywhere they want or you need. Orientations can be done on or off site. They can even be used in combination with in-class or in-field training for a blended training model.

Connect them to their supervisors and make them feel at home.
