Orientation and Onboarding

All Staff and Administrators

Full-day orientations are offered on the first work day of every month. Employees hired in the middle of the month must attend a half-day session to ensure they receive relevant training and access to college systems. This applies to full and part-time employees. The part-time employee schedule is modified, however, so they attend only for information relevant to part-time status.

All New employees regardless of start date

On-boarding is the process of learning the college culture, developing relationships and learning job-relevant information and skills that enable new employees to quickly reach full productivity. Much of this is facilitated by managers. The college will soon offer a series of meetings with different college divisions to help new employees learn about the college and develop relationships outside their department. Watch this space for a schedule beginning in Autumn 2014.
