Participants Needed for Focus Group Regarding New Hire Orientation

Human Resources is looking for volunteers who would like to join a focus group to help us gather feedback about what you would like to see in a New Hire Orientation at Alfred University. We are looking to create a New Hire Orientation program and your feedback would be key in making this a great success. This focus group will meet one or two times with the purpose of gathering what our current employees think should be included in this process.

We will present our initial data to you and what we have lined out, with the hopes that your feedback can help us enhance our overall process. Think back to when you were a new hire and what you would have liked Human Resources to provide to you in the form of an orientation process.

We are seeking representation from faculty and hourly/salaried staff. If you are interested in joining this focus group, please email Kayleigh Misner at misner@alfred.edu by July 26, 2019. Once we have representation from all employee groups across campus we will set a date to have our first session, during the week of August 5-9.
