On-Boarding New Employees

On-boarding is a strategic and comprehensive process of assimilating and integrating new employees into the university, preparing them to succeed at their job, and enabling them, in a short period of time, to become fully engaged and productive members of the university.

To achieve the fastest and highest productivity and retention levels for new hires, this comprehensive on-boarding process is recommended. Implementing on-boarding is consistent with and supportive of the University’s mission, culture, and strategy and will result in increased new hire retention, engagement, and productivity.

The primary goal of On-Boarding is to create the best, positive new-hire experience possible. It is the responsibility of all Pace employees to provide a welcoming and helpful environment for new staff members.

At Pace, there is a core on-boarding process for all new hires. For management level and executive level new hires, the on-boarding process provides additional services to ensure a smooth and rapid transition to the new position.

To successfully accomplish the on-boarding process, a coordinated effort among the new hire, the hiring manager, staff support, and Human Resources is required. Roles and responsibilities for each of these on-boarding stakeholders are outlined in each level of on-boarding, as responsibilities may change depending on the organizational level of the new hire.
