PURPOSE: To outline Trident Technical College's new employment orientation programs which are designed to promote learning and enhance opportunities for job success.
- ORIENTATION—ALL EMPLOYEES
- The Human Resources Department staff conducts a benefits orientation for all new employees within three days of hire to provide information on insurance programs, state retirement programs, payroll options and other benefits available to employees.
- The Human Resources Director conducts an orientation for all new employees within one month of hire to provide information on TTC Policies and Procedures, TTC Handbook, EPMS, FPMS, Sexual Harassment and other information on job performance.
- ORIENTATION — FACULTY
The office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs conducts an orientation and effective pedagogy course for all new full-time faculty to provide training and information required to perform job duties and responsibilities. This course is approximately 14 weeks in length and meets several hours each week. A new full-time faculty member receives a one-course release from his/her academic teaching load in exchange for participation.
The office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs also conducts annual orientations for part-time faculty before the Fall and Spring semesters.
- ORIENTATION — CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEES
Supervisors of classified employees are responsible for overseeing an effective program of orientation for all new classified employees. The Human Resources Department provides new classified employees with a New Classified Employee Orientation Check Sheet during the benefits orientation. The check sheet serves to facilitate discussions between the new employee and the supervisor whereby a tailored orientation program is designed specific to the new employee's job responsibilities. Supervisors must attach the completed check sheet to the employee's six-month interim evaluation.
