Orientation for New Staff Employees

The Office of Human Resources offers an orientation program to help familiarize new staff employees to the University. This program provides you with information about the University's policies, procedures, and services to help ensure that you have selected the payroll and benefits options that work best for you, and allows you to meet new staff members from other areas of the University.

In preparation for your employee orientation, the Office of Human Resources has compiled a packet of information that highlights many of the decisions you will be making as a new employee of the University of Pittsburgh. Following is information about orientation and a typical outline of the day’s topics. You must schedule your orientation session in advance with a recruiter.

Virtual Orientation Information & Schedule

Virtual orientation sessions are held at 8:30 a.m. each Monday via Zoom. An invitation to attend orientation will be sent to new hires from their OHR recruiter via email. If you require a disability accommodation, please contact us at 412-624-8150.
