    • Get your Incident number and FOLLOW UP!

Authorization Q&A

  • http://services.manitoba-ehealth.ca/files/frmAuthQA.pdf - email to [[WRHA Service Desk]].
    • I suspect that should NOT be done by the hiring person, because it implies the hiring person knowing these questions and answers. Isn't this something that the employee should mail in? Not sure if that's possible because of the order in which things need to happen... User:Ttenbergen 17:18, 16 August 2018 (CDT)


Email assigned timekeeper and provide employee number and start date.

Interro-01.gif Who are these timekeepers, and is there a place to look them up? Answer should probably actually live in Timekeeping.User:Ttenbergen 14:23, 12 September 2018 (CDT)

See Timekeeping for details.

Safety Orientation

Environmental Health and Safety Training (Safety Orientation) Please visit http://umanitoba.ca/admin/vp_admin/risk_management/ehso/training/index.html for more information about this training requirement. Inquiries about Environmental Health and Safety training should be directed to EHSO@umanitoba.ca. Interro-01.gif PHIA and other training are also required... what all is it?

Plan and schedule departmental and U of M orientation, see #UM Checklist Interro-01.gif How about on the WRHA side?

Employee Retention

  • WRHA employees are to complete a performance conversation with their supervisor/manager. Annual conversations are usually scheduled during the fall months.
  • PSM's are responsible to send completed original copies to HR in LB239 at HSC.

Onboarding vs orientation

Interro-01.gif I read an article about onboarding this morning that might include some useful bullets that address more what the new employee might need, rather than what we want to get done. Is there anything useful for us in there?

This sent me slightly further down the rabbit hole of what is the difference between orientation and onboarding (they are not synonymous). Almost all on this page is orientation. Should we do onboarding? User:Ttenbergen 08:25, 11 September 2018 (CDT)

what has changed...

Interro-01.gif The parts of this that are worth keeping need to be integrated. Moved here from a different page... User:Ttenbergen 22:38, 14 October 2018 (CDT)

  • We’re no longer automatically asking all internal candidates to complete onboarding steps.
  • Now, HRSS determines if there’s a change to the candidate’s benefits eligibility. If there is, the candidate is required to complete benefits forms. Such candidates are also required to complete tax forms. The system design does not allow us to turn off this requirement at this time. No other forms are required.
  • Daily reminder notifications will be sent to candidates who haven’t completed onboarding, beginning one week before the start date and ending when onboarding has been completed.
  • As an Org Chief, you will receive a copy of the initial onboarding notification to your candidate and any required reminders. If you start to receive reminders, you can contact your candidate and encourage the completion of onboarding right away. By doing this, you can eliminate the need to work through payroll corrections, etc.
  • Remember: Internal and external candidates must complete all onboarding asked of them before the start date or there may be an interruption or delay in pay and benefits coverage. That hasn’t changed. If your candidate doesn’t require onboarding, you will be advised by email.
  • A step-by-step guide to onboarding is now available. The onboarding notification to the employee provides a link to this.
