New Employee Orientation Programs

Welcome aboard. Now an orientation partnership begins between you and the University to help you enjoy a successful and satisfying work/life experience.

An effective orientation should be ongoing and not limited to the first few weeks of work. As a new employee, you are wise to work closely with your supervisor and other colleagues in your unit or department to ensure that you have all the information and resources you need to feel comfortable and prepared.

Arizona Public Service Orientation

Arizona state law requires that all state employees receive a public service orientation that covers policies and laws relating to the proper conduct of business for a public employee. At the conclusion of the orientation, be sure to view and print your certificate of completion.

The Arizona Public Service Orientation is offered online.

UA Welcome & Benefits Orientation

You will receive a benefits packet from your home department. After you receive and review this packet, you are encouraged to view the online benefits orientation materials. If you do not have questions about your benefit options you may choose to go to UAccess Employee/Manager Self Service> Self Service > Benefits > Enroll.

New Employees of the University of Arizona Health Sciences (UAHS) should also contact the UAHS-Human Resources on-site unit at (520) 626-4650 to learn about additional orientation activities at UAHS. College of Medicine, Phoenix, employees are encouraged to participate in this orientation via video conference.

UA Career Foundations 

UA Career Foundations is offered in the afternoon once each month, on the same day that the Welcome &  Benefits Orientation is offered.  If you would like to spend an entire day learning about your benefits and UA History and Resources, that can be done.  If it’s more convenient, you could also sign up for benefits orientation on one day and take Career Foundations on another.  We want to make it convenient for new employees. 

This interactive 2.5-hour professional development experience explores the history and culture of the UA community. You will learn about the vast array of resources that will aid in your success as a UA employee, and that will also help your experience at the UA to be personally and professionally fulfilling.
