Coaching New Employees

As a manager, you have an important role in welcoming new employees and enabling them to succeed. Effective employee onboarding has a positive domino effect: it ensures that new hires feel welcome and prepared in their new positions, in turn giving them the confidence and resources to make an impact within the organization, and ultimately allowing the university and the departments to continue carrying out their mission.
