Starting a job at UW can be overwhelming for both new employee and hiring manager. The onboarding process is a key part in ensuring a positive lasting relationship. UW Tacoma HR has put together a list of materials and links to help guide new employees through their first months.
The University encourages the adoption of non-traditional work arrangements when they work to the advantage of both the employee and the unit. There are several factors to consider. Adoption of a non-traditional work arrangement requires the supervisor's and/or unit administrator's advance approval in writing, and is based on their determination that the arrangement will work for all concerned.
An important part of an employee's ongoing development at UW Tacoma are consistent performance evaluations. Learn more about how and when you should be conducting these. Additional resources are available on the UW Seattle website, including the supervisor’s guide for performance management.
No one knows how hard an employee works better than their supervisor. UW Tacoma HR has put together resources on how to acknowledge your employees' great work as well as encourage growth. Also see Employee Engagement.
