Topics for this workshop are to discuss how to set your new employee up for success, from offer through their first year of employment. We will explore techniques to negotiation, support and communication throughout the hiring process and beyond. We will share resources to support you in your role and resources to support your new team member. You will be provided a checklist of best practices on how to create an inviting space from day one. We will also provide you with resources on how to help your employee become anchored into to the immediate IC community as well as the local community. Search committee chairs and department chairs are particularly encouraged to attend.
