The Manager Buddy System (MBS) is an add-on to the New Employee Buddy System which allows assignment of a management-level buddy to a newly appointed department manager or team lead.
The Manager Buddy System is designed to alleviate some of the burden new managers face surrounding tactical tasks (approving time sheets, POs, engaging with Sandia systems, etc.), and allow them to network and grow their support system as a new leader at Sandia. The MBS is a critical part of a new managers onboarding experience.
The demands of leadership don’t always leave ample time for development, which is so vital for success. This guide is designed to help offset that by giving new leaders agency and autonomy in their development. The resources within the guide are vetted by the Talent Management and Development (3522) team and other Sandia subject matter experts. The guide focuses on individual tasks to ensure success, the many resources available at Sandia to engage with for support, and best practices for new leaders to support themselves and their teams.
