Uteam Onboarding Essentials


We want to ensure all new employees feel that key information about their jobs and the organization has been clearly communicated during the hiring process and throughout their first year. Research has shown the first year is critical to reducing voluntary turnover and making employees feel included in a team.

Backed by research and recommendations from best-practice Medical Center managers and UVAMC Human Resources, the onboarding process on this page provides a personalized approach to help every new employee feel welcomed, informed, and included as a member of the UVAMC team. Satisfied, informed employees are not only more likely to stay at UVA Medical Center, but also better able to provide top quality care to patients.
