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 every month (registration at UC Learning Center). The agenda includes an optional campus tour, plus information on Employee Relations, Retirement Benefits, Staff Diversity, and other campus services.
