Follow-up for Success


New team members are vital in helping organizations achieve goals, represent values and move forward. Continued onboarding throughout the first year of a new team member's employment helps lead to these successes. To ensure new team members are acclimating well and contributing to the success of the Health System, they are given the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on their experiences. This feedback will help the team members feel invested in their positions and help to improve the department’s onboarding practices and reduce turnover within the first year of a team member's employment.

Opportunities for Feedback

To ensure the Onboarding Program meets the needs of our new team members, two confidential surveys will be deployed to solicit feedback about their experiences. Appropriate changes will be made to the program when necessary. In addition, information will be passed to UVA Medical Center leadership to assure accountability and to assist managers with this process.
