Research indicates that a successful onboarding process improves employee engagement and leads to retaining top talent. The Department of Vermont Health Access (DVHA) New Employee Orientation (NEO) provides an opportunity for new staff to make the connection between the work that they do in their position and how that rolls up to our overall department and agency mission.
Going forward, all new employees will be assigned the DVHA New Employee Orientation in LINC as they are onboarded. There is a reporting feature in LINC that will allows the Admin Unit to track completion and develop this key performance indicator. The completion reports in LINC will be compared to reports in people soft (VTHR) for new hires/transfers into the department. Only classified employees, including full or part time limited service and permanent positions are required to take the NEO; temporary or contracted staff are not.
NEO training in March was canceled due to limited staff. NEO has not been rescheduled due to COVID-19.
