Pilot Project Onboarding of New Employees at TU Wien

The following modules were developed and are available within the pilot project for testing by supervisors, colleagues and new employees.

  • An onboarding checklist is intended to help you, your supervisor and other persons who support you at the beginning of your employment relationship to work through all the necessary steps for a smooth arrival at the TU Wien in a structured manner (varies depending on the workplace).
  • Your supervisor can provide you with a buddy from your new team for the onboarding phase. This person will personally support you in arriving at the team and introduce you to the informal knowledge of the department. HR Development will provide you and your buddy with a list of potential topics to discuss with your buddy in weekly jour-fixes. On the first day of work, an individual buddy plan should be created for what topics you would like to discuss and work on and when. At the end of the onboarding phase, a final meeting should take place between you, your buddy and the direct supervisor(s).

In the knowledge platform we continuously collect all useful knowledge about the TU Wien. There you can look up terms from A-Z, the map of various facilities and much more.
We would be pleased if you, your supervisors and new colleagues would like to come back to these offers and invite you to give us feedback in this test phase, so that we can optimally onboard all new employees at the TU Wien at their new workplaces in the future.
