Orientation Program

Orientation Program Overview

QuickStart Orientation is open to all new permanent employees and faculty. This session provides information about benefits, payroll, parking and transportation, account setup and Western ID cards. QuickStart is offered each Monday from 9-10:30am, and you will be invited to the session that is closest to your start date.

New Employee Orientation, or NEO, is your opportunity to connect with the culture, history, and mission of Western. All new permanent employees will attend an orientation, but temporary employees are also welcome and encouraged to attend if they are able. Faculty have their own orientation program but are also welcome to attend New Employee Orientation. As a newly hired employee, you will receive an invitation to the session that works with your start date.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
