HRD Brings New UKZN Employees “On Board”
A total of 60 new employees from across UKZN attended the Human Resources Division’s latest Employee On-Boarding Programme on 8 and 9 July. The programme aims at providing new employees with relevant information about support services, policies, contact people and other information that could assist them in settling into their new job and environment as quickly and as comfortably as possible.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Head of the College of Law and Management Studies, Professor John Mubangizi, opened the programme and welcomed the new employees. He provided an overview of the University, its vision to become the “Premier University of African Scholarship” and the strategic goals which have been set. He encouraged the new employees to contribute towards assisting the University to achieve its vision by performing at their best in the particular positions to which they have been appointed.
During the course of the two days, employees received information regarding the University’s core values, the various Colleges, the different support functions and the services they offer, support offered by the Research Office and the University Teaching and Learning Office, as well information about various employee benefits. They also received training regarding the University’s Performance Management process.
Overall feedback from the new employees indicated that the On-Boarding programme had provided them with valuable information.
