Webinar | Designing a Meaningful and Helpful Onboarding Program for New Researchers
Tuesday, November 6, 2018 – 2:00pm to 3:00pm
This webinar will provide detailed information on how to build an orientation program with consistency and continuity at your home institution. Based on our institutional findings, we developed a research-specific orientation that helps get research faculty engaged with research on their first day. It is intended to help get established investigators up to speed as quickly as possible and provide them with a sense of community with the larger organization. The orientation program has four aims: 1) increase new researcher productivity, 2) improve retention rates of new faculty by helping them become involved and connected, 3) provide audience-specific, in-depth, timely information that is useful and memorable, and 4) reduce redundant conversations while guaranteeing the delivery of high-quality, consistent, and accurate information.
