New employees are required to participate in a comprehensive onboarding program. See the chart showing required sessions based on job classification. Additional information is available on the Onboarding Overview page.
The hiring manager or supervisor should register all new staff and any faculty hired off-cycle for the Benefits Enrollment Session. Registration for the session should conform to the following process:
Questions about the process? e-Mail HRSLearningServices@uvm.edu.
Notification of session enrollment will be sent to the employee at the e-mail address provided on the registration form. The employee's supervisor and the person filling out the registration form will both be copied on the initial scheduling e-mails. (Supervisors will also be copied on any e-mails related to the rescheduling of sessions.)
Employees will receive a reminder e-mail during the week prior to each of their scheduled sessions.
Attendance at all scheduled sessions is expected. If other obligations prevent the employee from attending a session, the session can be rescheduled by calling HRS Learning Services at 802-656-5800 or e-mailing HRSLearningServices@uvm.edu.
Hiring managers and supervisors will be notified if an employee is scheduled for a required session and does not attend. It will be the responsibility of the employee/department to reschedule the session.
Onboarding checklists will be made available to supervisors and hiring managers mid-February.
