Weekly Onboarding Sessions Moving to Live Virtual Meetings

Weekly onboarding sessions for new faculty and staff members will soon be held virtually via Zoom. These comprehensive sessions, which were suspended in March and supplemented with a video recording of the content, provide new employees with the opportunity to complete all required onboarding tasks before beginning work with their department. Moving to a live virtual format will ensure that new employees, including faculty hires for the fall semester, have personal contact with the Office of Human Resources as they begin their CMU careers.

Representatives from the HR Service Center will reach out to each new employee via email in the weeks leading up to their first day. The employee’s department initiator and hiring manager will be copied on the email, which will include session details as well as required pre-session tasks.
