As a supervisor or manager it’s sometimes difficult to remember what needs to be done when hiring a new employee. Use this page as a general reference to help guide you through the initial process of onboarding a new employee. We encourage you to review the Onboarding Training for Supervisors Module, use this guide to help welcome your new employee, and be sure to incorporate any agency specific onboarding processes that may also be required. **(Please note: If you’re using Chrome as your internet browser, the above link will direct you to download Adobe Flash in order to view the module.
