Managers induction checklist – first 100 days

Welcome to your first University of Lincoln 100 days as a manager. Whether you have just joined the University as a manager or alternatively you have taken on line management duties, this guide will support you through this crucial period. Although we are focusing on your first 100 days, this guide will help to embed good practices into your management skills which will continue long after the 100 days. There is also guidance and advice to maintain excellent management practice too. This guide is to work alongside the general induction checklist for new staff if you are new to the University. The guide is split into monthly activities for you to work through, however if you feel that there is a section or content that is more relevant at a certain point in time, you can move to any section easily.
