As part of the hiring process, all new benefits-eligible staff will be automatically registered for and the date for orientation will be included on the official offer letter sent by the HR Service Center. Similarly, new benefits-eligible faculty will be automatically enrolled in orientation. That date will be shared with both the department and new faculty member.
As orientation is an all-day session, it is important that no meetings with the new employee be scheduled on that date. Ideally, pertinent team meetings would be rescheduled to allow the new employee to participate fully.
