Effectively orienting new employees to the campus and to their positions is critical to establishing successful, productive working relationships. The employee's first interactions with you should create a positive impression of your department and the campus. The time you spend planning for the new person's first days and weeks on the job will greatly increase the chance for a successful start.
UC Berkeley offers New Employee Orientation sessions, which are held every other month (enrollment is done via blu). The agenda includes a campus tour, plus information on Employee Relations, Payroll, Benefits, Staff Diversity Initiatives, and other campus services.
