Orientation programmes should be imparted to the employees in their interest areasMost of the people are inclined to work or function in the area towards which their mind is oriented. For example if a person is kind hearted and wants to help the poor or needy then it means that his orientation is in the direction of helping poor people. Different people have got orientation in different direction. That generally decides their main field of activity. In many organisations the employees are given orientation trainings in certain specified areas to make the employees aware about those terrains so that they can work proficiently in those areas. Every person has a liking or disliking for a particular area of work and functioning and it may so happen that he may not like someone or the management to orient him to that area which is in no way his choice. So any orientation programme is to be offered or given to a person only after seeing his interest and liking so that he can excel in that and the organisation also gets benefited in the process. Time to time organisations feel the need for orientation programmes for their employees at different levels to bring them at par with the industry practices as well as to make them aware of the happenings in the business environment. The orientation programmes help the employees to learn the newer skills as well as to understand the changing business environment and this is very much essential for the survival of any business unit or organisation. In essence, the orientation programmes are a win-win situation for the employer as well as the employees. Generally the companies give their employees opportunity to undertake orientation programmes in the area of their interest by choosing the field from the given allowable options.
