Human Resources to introduce new employee orientation

April 2, 2012

Human Resources has designed a University-wide orientation for new employees. The goal of this new program is to support new staff members in assimilating quickly and successfully into the Purdue culture and to offer a foundation of knowledge regarding mission, organizational structure and functions.

At the time an open position is filled, the supervisor will register the employee for orientation.

New employee orientation will roll out on April 16 and will be offered weekly on Mondays.

The success of this program depends on supervisors' registering their employees to take part. Participation is highly encouraged, and feedback is welcome.
