Upcoming Webinars (all times are Eastern):
February 20, 2:00pm: Digital Transformation from Day One: Onboarding New Employees – Iris Du, Heather Davis, Corin Walker (Texas Womans University)
Many new employees find the hierarchy of a university to be a daunting challenge. Making sense of the “organized anarchy” can be tough, and using technology to get anything done can be a significant hurdle for new hires. Beginning with a general overview session for new hires, we have iterated to develop a strategy that engages new employees to make them feel welcome and build a positive relationship with IT from day one. Beyond connecting employees to our services, we are able to encourage “good habits,” such as contacting the Service Desk for support and safely saving files. Our focus is on being agile and collaborative. New hires who have benefitted from this revised process report fewer tickets and feel more comfortable with our technology services and systems than those hired before our process began.
The webinar will feature a brief overview of our onboarding relationship management for new hires across our multi-campus university. We will include a sample of our just-in-time communication plan and new hire face-to-face meeting checklist.
