New Employee Onboarding

A guide for new employees

First Day and First Week

First Day

On your first day we want you to feel welcomed and be prepared to start working as you begin to understand what it means to be a part of Ohio State and your team.

  • If you are an Ohio State Wexner Medical Center employee, you are scheduled to attend Medical Center Orientation on your first day. For questions, please refer to your letter of offer.
  • All new faculty members are invited to New Faculty Orientation, hosted every August by the Office of Academic Affairs. Learn more and register on the OAA website.

First Week

During your first week, you should meet with your manager to build knowledge of internal processes and performance expectations. This is also a great time to engage with your new team members. Also, continue to work on the onboarding items assigned to you in Workday.
