In your first three months you will begin to see what the new job is all about. Depending on your coworkers for information, direction, and decision making is typical. Remember, a shared understanding of job goals and expectations is critical. If you don't know something, just ask! Don’t expect to proceed too rapidly through the stages. It often takes a full year to become independently productive in a new job.
Some questions that are common for new employees are answered in the Mayo Clinic Welcome Guide which you’ll receive at Mayo Clinic Orientation.
As a new employee, support from your colleagues is imperative to your success. Once you have access to Mayo Clinic’s Intranet, check out some of the ways you can connect with coworkers and learn more about Mayo at the same time:
Remember to complete your online modules within 30 days of your start date. All required modules for new employees can be found by navigating to HR Connect on the Mayo intranet. From there, click My Learning at the bottom of the page.
The needs of the patient come first.
At orientation, you learned that Mayo Clinic is a values-driven organization. As you start your employment, watch for the ways that Mayo Clinic's values shape how the work in your area is done. A good way to remember the eight supporting core values is RICH TIES, which stands for Respect, Integrity, Compassion, Healing, Teamwork, Innovation, Excellence and Stewardship.
Visit the Mayo Clinic Values Council intranet site to learn more about this important part of how we work at Mayo Clinic.
Benefit eligible employees will receive an email with instructions on how to access the Benefits Orientation Online course through My Learning.
