26. On-Job-Preview – OJP : On-Job- Preview is a process in which the employer gives an opportunity for the new employee to get to know the work environment, job related scenarios and organizational perspective before joining. This process can be applied to many jobs in an organization unless any sensitive products/services/work involved. To be able to implement this process there must be a set of non-disclosures in place.  This process would ensure that the employee joins the organization with more clarity of information both positive and negatives than based on their own preconceived perceptions without OJP.

In cases where it is essential the employer can invite the potential employee to visit their office with a specific agenda fixed in advance and ensuring all the teams/individuals spare time to give them a view of job.  During the visit they can also look at the environment in which they are going to operate.
