New Employee Orientation for Staff

See below for information on new employee orientations and who should attend.

New Employee Orientation is held twice a month via Zoom on Monday morning (except for university holidays) from 8:45 - 10:15 a.m. You will be introduced to the university's structure and personnel policies, and find out information about resources and services available to staff. 

New staff employees must attend New Employee Orientation within their first 30 days of employment. Benefits Orientation is also recommended for all new staff.  

Registration through the UC Learning Center (log-in required) must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on the Wednesday prior to New Employee Orientation on Monday. Please note: We recommend that you wait one week after your start date before you register for NEO to ensure that all of your information has been updated in UCPath. 

If you have any issues logging onto the UC Learning Center, after your first week of work, please request help from the UC Learning Center team via the Service & Support Portal at
