New Employees

The welcoming of new employees is a collaborative effort that includes human resources (HR), the hiring department and other teams. Preparing for new hires and providing appropriate guidance and information during the first several days of employment can ensure success. 

This orientation process is not a replacement for onboarding of employees to their specific role and department, which is a more detailed and longer process.

Onboarding is a major tool in successful talent management and is critical for successful employee integration. Onboarding creates an understanding of the organizational culture that helps the newly hired employee feel better connected to the organization's business strategy and creates a sense of belonging to UNT System. Implementing a well-managed onboarding process can have a significant and measurable impact on employee retention, employment brand, services, and future hiring.
