5. Staff: Join the Buddy Program

The Buddy Program matches new employees (staff) with employees who have been with the university for one year or more, for a period of three months, to provide the new employees with a reliable, motivated, single point of contact for their basic questions regarding their work experience at UTHSC.

The aim of this program is to target two goals: To provide the new employee with a point of contact for general queries regarding day-today operational issues (such as the location of facilities, information processing requirements, and relevant company policies) and to help the new employee integrate with the university by providing access to someone who is familiar with our culture, attitude and expectations.

If you are interested in learning more about the program and becoming a buddy, please visit the Buddy Program website.
