NEW @ the U - New Employee Welcome Launched

Posted on Friday, August 29th, 2014

Human Resources is pleased to announce the launch of NEW @ the U, a new employee welcome program.

The University of Guelph aims to provide both a supportive and welcoming environment to its new staff. We take pride in the talented employees we attract to the University of Guelph and are committed to ensuring they get the best possible start we can give them.  NEW stands for New Employee Welcome and that is the primary objective of this newly launched initiative.

Through the coordination of various sessions, activities and services new employees participating in NEW @ the U will develop a connection to the University of Guelph’s unique culture and way of doing things, gaining important information, insight and skills that will help them feel more comfortable and be productive more quickly in their jobs.

NEW @ the U complements new employee orientation initiatives which may currently be housed at the departmental level. It begins with a two day session called NEW Days which are followed up by a full series of activities and sessions over an employee’s first year, ensuring that those who are “New to the U” feel a part of the University.

The program is targeted to new employees who are permanent, full-time or part-time staff or full-time with an appointment of greater than 6 months.
