HR Representative Onboarding

Welcome to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill! We are thrilled to have you join our campus HR community.


The Office of Human Resources provides a three-day training class for all new HR representatives during their first two weeks of employment. The objective of this training is to provide you with an overview of the HR organization at UNC-Chapel Hill and to help you better understand our policies and procedures.

Your First Week

Here’s what your first week as a Carolina employee will look like:

On your first day, typically a Monday, you’ll attend New Employee Orientation at the Friday Center in the morning, followed by an afternoon in your new workspace.

You’ll have the chance to get your parking pass, your OneCard, and your Onyen (the “only name you’ll ever need” – your University computer ID. Please note – you must have your Onyen before you come to training on Tuesday. You should also obtain a service permit and gate pass for days 2 and 3 of your training.

More detailed information regarding your first day of employment will be sent from your immediate supervisor or your home department.
