The IR & EE Specialist in HR will meet with the new support staff, usually within 6 months of their arrival at Rhodes University. The purpose of this meeting is to:
- Ensure that the individual is settling into the University;
- Identify any problems as soon as possible and seek to address these;
- Explore professional development plans and opportunities; and
- Gather information on the experiences of new staff at the University and where there are systemic problems, seek to address these. This information is fed back to the HR Division.
