This online Corporate Employee Orientation Program has been created by the Nova Scotia Public Service Commission to provide you with all you need to know about your new employer: the Government of Nova Scotia. The corporate information that you will learn through the learning modules will supplement the departmental orientation you receive from your hiring department and your manager.
Through this collaborative approach, we hope that you will receive the information you need to perform your best in your job and make your transition into your new role as smooth and positive as possible! The Corporate Employee Orientation Program is divided into seven modules:
- Section 1 – Overview of Introduction Chapter
- Section 2 – Our Strategic Direction and Vision
- Section 3 – Our Values
- Section 4 – Overview of Departments
- Section 5 – Pride in our Public Service
- Section 6 – Navigating Through Government
- Section 7 – Connecting the Dots
Please review each section carefully. You do not need to complete all of the modules in one sitting—you can work through them at your own pace. However, it is recommended that you try to complete the program within the first month of your new job. At the end of each module, you can complete a short self-assessment to gauge your understanding of the information presented.
Regardless of your role in government, the information in this program will provide you with helpful information, great resources, and links to help you get settled over the next few weeks. Are you ready to get started? If yes, please click the “continue” button at the bottom of this page to begin.
