A Supervisor's Guide for the Orientation of Extension Employees.
Richardson, Clyde M.; Eckard, Melvin L.
The guide is intended to assist Extension Service Supervisors plan and carry out activities to help their subordinates adjust to new jobs and become meaningfully productive as soon as possible. Modification to fit specific requirements is recommended. The orientation process is described, and its seven phases are treated separately: personal needs; office orientation; meeting people; the organization; position, job, duties, and roles; program development; and professional improvement. Checklists of items to be discussed or explained are included, along with suggested activities for the new employee and suggestions for the supervisor. Recommended readings are listed separately and at appropriate sections throughout the guide. Appendixes cover duties of subject matter specialists and county extension staff, problem solving functions of the extension professional, and score cards for evaluating meetings and circular letters.
