Human Resources > HRD > New Employee Orientation

Welcome new employees!

This web site is intended to help new employees feel more comfortable in their new positions by acquainting them with important information about benefits and the various support and service activities on campus.  We recommend that all new employees familiarize themselves with the topics listed below; much of what is here will help the new employee to transition smoothly and have an easier time at the orientation itself.

New Employees’ Orientation:  The Department of Human Resources and the Payroll and Benefits Office conduct a centralized New Employees’ Orientation (NEO) on Thursday mornings, at the HRD Training Facility, which is located in room 1204, in the East Glenn Administrative Complex, beginning at 8 a.m.; the orientation will conclude at approximately 11:45 a.m. depending on the amount of time it takes each employee to complete benefits enrollment.     

Attendance is by invitation, and all new regular employees (staff, faculty, and contract) will be scheduled for an orientation. There is an optional walking tour that the new employee can register for.

The NEO includes a little of the history and background of the University, our mission and role in the educational community, some basic fundamentals of what an employee needs to know to get started with us, and a general idea of what is on campus.

Scheduling the orientation:  Employees are scheduled to attend in the following manner:  New University Staff (US) and Administrative Professional (AP) employees (the two major divisions of the staff category) will be scheduled for NEO by Human Resources.  For new faculty members and contract employees, departmental administrators responsible for the hiring process should contact Mary Elizabeth Fukai in HRD (844-7391 or to arrange the orientation date.   After an employee has been scheduled for orientation, HRD will notify the new employee by email of the specific date and time of orientation and send each one a welcome packet with important employment paperwork and useful information to bring to orientation.
