New Employee Orientation

In light of IU’s response to COVID-19 and the desire to limit in-person meetings, IU Human Resources will offer a condensed online recording for New Employee Orientation. Employee benefits (health and retirement) are covered due to the time-sensitive nature of enrollment. 

*New employees from all campuses are welcome to view this webinar session.

Welcome to Indiana University! You have accepted a position at one of the world’s foremost public institutions – and the epitome of the modern university. Indiana University’s new employee orientation program, open to all new benefit-eligible Staff employees, introduces you to the design and culture of the University and outlines the comprehensive set of programs and benefits that you are eligible for.

Who is Invited

  • New Staff hired into a benefit-eligible* position.
  • Existing Staff who transfer into a benefit-eligible* position from a position that was previously not benefit-eligible.

For faculty, please see the New Faculty Welcome page for more ways to connect.

* Benefit-eligible means persons employed by Indiana University as full-time (75% FTE or greater) appointed Staff employees.

System Access

As a new employee you may have unique system access requirements and your manager will guide you through the access process for those systems. The following links may be helpful in getting off to a quick start in setting up your personal system access and navigating useful information in ONE.IU

What You'll Learn

In addition to this program, you may receive additional information or emails from your department or other IU entities about further orientation and trainings, benefit enrollments, payroll information, and health and safety.
