Onboarding Processes

New Hire Data Collection
Employee information, such as the Section 1 of the Form I-9, tax withholding forms, direct deposit is collected online.

  • The employee receives a link to the New Hire Wizard shortly after accepting the position, when the recruiter moves them from the recruitment module to the onboarding module in SuccessFactors.
  • If the employee needs their Welcome Letter email resent, or their New Hire Wizard password reset, send an email to to the attention of CSC Specialists to request the resend/reset.  Please include the employee’s name, email address, and Onboarding Coordinator in the email.

An Onboarding Coordinator or Supervisor is often used as a point person to send a Welcome email to the new hire prior to the first day. Please use the New Hire Email Template for guidance.  The email often contains important links to information, meeting requests, etc.
The new employee should know the following items:

  • Where to go to complete section 2 of their I-9 Form; employee should contact their employment center, as some centers require an appointment and are not accepting walk-ins. 
  • What time to arrive their first day and where to park.
  • Where their work area is located and any special access requirements
  • Access to their computer or other work devices (Some areas utilize their IT staff to assist new hires)
