As organizations scale it becomes increasingly difficult to have a consistent experience for new employees being introduced to the culture and their role. We know that onboarding experiences—and how well they meet expectations and needs—influence how employees engage with the culture and their success in the role. The academic leaders at the United States Air Force Academy have observed that the complexity of the organization and the limited classroom experience for many incoming faculty members makes onboarding and continuous development a critical need for the Academy. However, the Academy team has limited capacity to create the portals, experiences, simulations, orientation materials, and skill development resources necessary for faculty. Relatedly, the Air Force Combatives Center of Excellence, is hiring faculty to lead this new program and requires a solution to provide preboarding, onboarding, and continuous development. To meet these needs, we propose to extend TiER1’s onboarding and development technology platform to create Inspire, a faculty onboarding and continuous development solution for the Academy.
