Onboarding Resources for Managers and New Hires

The first year of employment is crucial to reducing voluntary turnover and increasing organizational retention. Additionally, a consistent onboarding process for all roles within an organization helps ensure that new hires feel included and welcome on their teams.

We are working to provide managers and new hires alike with resources to support a strong start to each new employee’s career at UVA. Read on to learn what’s available now, and check back for additional tools in the coming months.

Onboarding Checklist for Managers

Onboarding is an investment in employee retention and productivity, and managers play a critical role in planning and implementing the onboarding process for new employees. Often, employees feel a stronger connection to the organization and to their immediate teams when thoughtfully engaged. As a result, these employees are typically more successful contributors. This checklist serves as a guide to setting your new employee on a path for success. Adapt it to meet your school/unit/department’s unique needs, or use it in combination with existing school/unit/department onboarding checklists.

Please note: the Onboarding Checklist for Managers replaces the previously posted Departmental Orientation Checklist.
