New Hire Onboarding
Helping new hires through the hiring process is the responsibility of the hiring department. Refer new employees to the New Employee Welcome webpage for information on the new hire orientations and a list of required paperwork.
In addition to the required Human Resources orientation, departments should conduct an orientation of the work area and an explanation of employee’s responsibilities and working conditions. The Department/Job Orientation Checklist provides the supervisor and the employee guidelines for reviewing departmental policies and procedures. When completed, the checklist should be returned by the new employee’s immediate supervisor to the Office of Human Resources for inclusion in the employee’s personnel file. A department orientation is mandatory for the Department of Facilities Management.
