Onboarding new employees is a multifaceted process. Onboarding is not only a time to train someone on the day-to-day of their role but is the first opportunity to share the values and culture of your organization with new staff. Tangible takeaways from this training include understanding the importance of onboarding, involving multiple team members in the onboarding experience, and creating a structured onboarding process.

Feedback is an essential element of student employee development. However, many students view feedback and the evaluation process as an intimidating one. Supervisors have the ability to make these processes meaningful instead of daunting. This training will focus on your role as a supervisor and the influence you have on framing feedback as support for improvement on a regular basis and through performance evaluations.

A meaningful student employee experience celebrates when students leave to pursue further career development opportunities.  The offboarding process is an invaluable opportunity to “tie a bow” on a student’s campus employment.  How do you create an offboarding process that leaves the door open for your relationship with students to continue?  How can I create an offboarding process that is centered on employee development? This training will address these questions and outline a structured offboarding process (e.g., exit interviews/assessment, separation paperwork).
