Shimmick has announced it will be launching a new Big Sister program in November aimed at welcoming new women to Shimmick. All women within the company are eligible to participate as a big sister through this program designed to help newly hired women feel welcome during their first months on the job. Big sisters will be paired with new employees.
This program is part of Women@Shimmick’s goal to improve the experiences of women at Shimmick and create a welcoming environment where women can thrive. Studies show that new employees paired with a “buddy” during their first few months of employment feel greater engagement and are more productive.
