Department orientation is critical because it directly impacts a staff member's performance and contribution to the department and to Duke. Visit the Orientation web site for tips on successfully orienting new staff to your department.
Duke is actively monitoring the local and global status of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 disease. Duke has taken proactive steps to minimize health and safety risks to students, faculty, staff and the larger community. Duke has ceased all group gatherings and has transitioned these activities to online environments. One of those gatherings includes the New Hire Orientation program.
The information your hire needs to know as a new Duke University employee will now be delivered as a two-part virtual course online via 1) a live-streaming WebEx session, and 2) through our self-paced modules in Duke's Learning Management System (LMS).
This form should be used by payroll clerks or managers to register staff in the orientation welcome event. All staff members are required to attend orientation. Please register them as soon as possible so that they have ample time to enroll in benefits. Staff members must enroll in health insurance, dental insurance, and reimbursement accounts within 30 days of gaining eligibility. Otherwise, they will have to wait until the annual open enrollment period or a qualifying life event to sign up.
