Induction Week

Filed under: Developing Excellence — Tags: , — Mohammed Alam @ 10:53 am

In September, the Organisational Development section in Human Resources,  hosted a range of inductions that welcomed our new Graduate Laboratory Assistant, Graduate Teaching Assistant, Professional Services and Education & Research staff.

Over the course of the week, nearly 200 people attended a range of events that included an Induction Fair (photo below) to provide opportunity for new colleagues to meet others and understand more about a range of areas and services to support them in their role.

As part of the induction, everyone was introduced to our new induction Moodle page ‘Welcome to Essex‘. Here you can find the slides from all events during the induction week along with all relevant information related to induction. Welcome to Essex has been designed to complement your local induction and contains everything that we feel you will need to know during your first year of working here to get you started and settled in your new job.
