Hiring managers should create a comprehensive integration and orientation program to introduce their new employees to the university, college, and department. Several questions should drive what you do:

  1. What needs to be done to welcome the new employee in a way that affirms s/he made the right decision?
  2. What are the steps to fully integrate the new employee to the people, the job, your unit and the greater community over a 6 month timeframe?
  3. What does the new employee need to understand about OSU, your unit and you as the supervisor in order to succeed?

Refer to Inside OSU, an orientation guide for new employees and supervisors, as a resource.
