UNC-Chapel Hill offers the Welcome to Carolina Blue orientation program for new SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty permanent employees. The classroom-based orientation provides an overview of the programs, services, policies and benefits offered by the University. Employees must attend a Welcome to Carolina Blue session before beginning work.

Attendance at the Welcome to Carolina Blue orientation program is mandatory for all new SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty permanent employees. Sessions are held every Monday (or alternate day when the University is closed for a holiday).

Registration for the program is completed by the Talent Acquisition Partner or decentralized department representative at the time of the job offer. The Office of Human Resources, supervisors, departmental contacts and others are responsible for orienting the new employee to the organization.

New employees must be clear about their responsibilities at the University and given the tools needed to be successful in their jobs. A good orientation program takes time and effort, yet it is an important investment for hiring departments, new employees and the University.

The Orientation Checklist for New Employees and Orientation Checklist for Supervisors are intended to assist the department’s orientation efforts by highlighting the advantages and suggested content of a comprehensive orientation program.
