Your HR Training and Orientation Team

In HR Training and Orientation, we provide quality and cost effective training and onboarding/orientation to increase productivity, enhance knowledge, and engage employees early in their  UMMC career. It is our goal to ensure new employees have an exceptional onboarding experience, so we deliver the right information at the right time, while creating a value added experience. Leaders from across the organization welcome new employees to UMMC each week.

In addition to New Employee Orientation, we manage an HR program for new managers and leaders. In this program, we focus primarily on HR topics such as Employee Relations, Talent Acquisition, Benefits, Compensation, etc. This program is designed to provide new managers with knowledge, tools, and resources to help them do their job effectively. We want to ensure new managers and leaders understand HR compliance requirements and best practices to understand and comply with each topic area.

Other training is conducted across the organization, as well as departmentally, based on employee needs and ad-hoc requests. Some of the trainings include the Preparing for Success Series and Employee Engagement Learning Series:

  • Preparing for Success Series
      • Working Well with Others
      • Business Communication I – Self-Presentation
      • Business Communication II – Business Writing & Grammar, Email, Meeting, and Telephone Etiquette
      • Advancing Professionalism for Your Success
  •  Employee Engagement Learning Series
      • Listening with Purpose and Communicating with the Generations
      • Increase Engagement Through Conversations and Receiving Feedback

These programs are a blend of lecture and experiential workshops, facilitated by our own leaders, and are designed to enhance organizational performance through collaboration and engagement. For some classes, online training is created so that the training is more readily available to employees, as it is our goal to help employees reach their full potential and maximize achievement.
