What is Onboarding? 

Onboarding refers to the new employee programs, training, and check-ins our Division uses to help a new employee get up to speed and feel confident in their position. The Engagement Advisory Roundtable started to critically engage with our current Onboarding practices in the summer of 2016. Efforts were made to help offices understand new employee's needs within the Division, and this online resource was created. Further updates and resources will be outlined on this page as they become available. 

What does Onboarding consist of?

We try to connect employees with as many resources as possible, including the following:

  • We actually have a website for Division onboarding (hiring and getting acquainted with your new place of work)! visit thenew employee homepage. This homepage lists resources on trainings, hiring paperwork, and helpful, Division-specific info on departments, and more!
  • The Division hosts Coffee Corners once a month to get connect our offices in a less formal event. While not strictly an Onboarding activity, this is a great opportunity to get acquainted with co-workers. Email studentsuccess@montana.edu to be added to this event in Outlook. 
  • The Division also hosts Professional Development throughout the school year for Division employees – email Jen Joyce at jkjoyce@montana.edu to be added to the Outlook event.
  • Think about joining the Division mentoring program – more info here. Email ear@montana.edu if you have questions.
