Two new online HR toolkits give managers resources to support them in overseeing the hiring process and ongoing management of employees.
Under the Departments and Managers tab on the HR website home page are the Hiring Toolkit and the Manager’s Toolkit. The hiring toolkit includes resources for planning and onboarding along with answers to frequently asked questions. The manager’s toolkit includes information about career development, compensation support, conflict resolution, and performance and feedback, among other topics. Both toolkits provide links to necessary forms and policies. More toolkits are being developed.
The addition of toolkits is part of a larger redesign of the website to make it more user friendly and visually appealing. The navigational structure has been refreshed to reflect the way most people search for HR information. The redesign has also allowed both the UT System and UT Knoxville offices to reduce information redundancies and direct users to the best source for information on a given topic.
