Thrive at CC

Thrive at CC is a comprehensive onboarding program for new staff at Colorado College.

Purpose:

To provide staff with the critical information, connections, and experiences that will assist them in achieving success in their career with Colorado College.

Goal:

To quickly assimilate, engage and retain a highly committed staff that successfully contributes in achieving the college's vision, mission, and strategic initiatives.

Components of Thrive at CC:

  • CCNEW Orientation: Conducted by HR within the first 30 days of employment, typically the first business day of each month. This session provides critical information that staff need to know upon hire to get to know CC, get connected with campus, become informed of what to expect and key policies, as well as enroll in our robust benefit options.
  • CC Connect: Organized by HR triennially, CC Connect is our employee onboarding event designed to allow new staff to connect with the College's senior leadership. This is geared toward helping new staff learn about CC's mission, strategic initiatives, and culture. Additionally, new staff will be introduced to many of the College's resources that are available to them along with many people who bring it all together.
  • CC Ambassador Program: Connects a new employee with an existing employee from another department so the new employee has a "go-to" contact for questions, clarifications, and someone to assist them in connecting to the campus community. 
  • Hiring Manager's Onboarding Toolkit: Provides checklists, templates, and other information to assist the hiring manager in onboarding a new employee from offer acceptance to the end of the first year of employment.
