Announcements Develop and Learn Manager Memos & Tips

Manager Orientation shifts to online module

We are excited to announce that we have transitioned the in-person Manager Orientation (MO) for both the Danforth and Medical School campus to a newly designed online module. Manager Orientation is now available to complete in Learn@Work, the university’s learning management system.

The Manager Orientation online course provides essential information to help leaders be effective in their new role. You can conveniently enroll any newly hired and/or promoted managers at any time without waiting for scheduled dates.

While the Manager Orientation online module is designed for recently hired and/or promoted leaders, existing leaders are welcome. We encourage all leaders to utilize the Manager Orientation online module as often as necessary as a way to refresh or retool.
The goal of the Manager Orientation at Washington University program are to:

  • Provide new leaders with the tools and skills they need to begin their leadership journey at Washington University successfully
  • Help new leaders understand the University’s HR policies and procedures
  • Teach valuable leadership skills
  • Increase awareness of the learning resources available to help leaders invest in their continuous growth and development
