Welcome to Texas Children’s: Your Journey Begins with TC Hi

Starting a new job is a significant milestone, and at Texas Children’s, we ensure that your first day sets the stage for a rewarding career. Enter Texas Children’s Hi (TC Hi), our full-day orientation experience designed to immerse you in the vibrant culture of Texas Children’s and make you feel right at home from day one. 

What is Texas Children’s Hi? 

TC Hi is more than an orientation—it’s an experience that allows new hires to engage with various departments and fellow new employees on their first day. This program illustrates our four core values: Embrace Freedom, Lead Tirelessly, Live Compassionately, and Amplify Unity. Our values are the guiding principles that shape our work environment and culture. Through TC Hi, we provide a deeper understanding of these values and demonstrate how they are embodied in everyday practices at Texas Children’s. 

Our Commitment to Your Onboarding 

Texas Children’s takes pride in a robust onboarding process, with TC Hi as a cornerstone. After applying, interviewing, and accepting a role, the pre-employment process culminates with an invitation to TC Hi from our Talent Acquisition Team.  

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, TC Hi has transformed over the last few years, to include virtual delivery, eLearning modules, and condensed two-hour sessions. In 2023, we re-launched our current full-day structure to deliver an engaging and comprehensive in-person onboarding experience.  

“Our partners are intentional about providing the most relevant information to our new hires that makes them feel safe, engaged and valued,” says Shari Alexander, Organizational Development Consultant and TC Hi facilitator. 

TC Hi captures the essence of Texas Children’s. It is a day designed to make you feel welcome and excited about your future with us. 

What to Expect on Your First Day 

Expect a fun, engaging, and interactive day with TC Hi! Our enthusiastic facilitators bring energy, encouragement, and a touch of humor to each session. 

“We really try to capture the magic of Texas Children’s in a way that leaves the employee inspired, motivated, and confident in their decision to join us,” says Quincy Horton, Organizational Development Consultant and TC Hi facilitator.  

Beyond diving into our four core values, TC Hi offers insights into our Total Rewards and Workforce Well-Being programs and our strategies for maintaining safety and security. This comprehensive introduction ensures you are well-informed and prepared to thrive in your new role.
