ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Southern Mississippi
Self-efficacy has been shown to be an important element in the success of individuals in a variety of different settings. This research examined the impact of a two week new employee orientation training program on the general and social self-efficacy of newly hired direct care employees at state mental health facilities. The research showed that the training program did not have a statistically significant impact on the social self-efficacy of the new employees after the training or after one month on the job. The research also showed that the two week new employee orientation program did not have a statistically significant impact on the general self-efficacy of the newly hired employees immediately following the training. Lastly, the research showed that one month on the job resulted in a statistically significant increase in the general self-efficacy of the new employees.
