Employee Orientation 

One of your first critical steps as a University of Alabama employee will be completing New Employee Orientation.  New Employee Orientation will provide you the opportunity to learn more about the University‚Äôs traditions, values, and expectations.  The session will also provide important information regarding your benefits package and the time-sensitive steps you must take to enroll.  Last, you will have a chance to meet colleagues just like you, who are beginning their first days of employment at the Capstone. New employees have 30 days from their date of hire to enroll in benefits. 

Orientation is required for all new benefits-eligible faculty and staff. New staff employees hired through our online recruitment system (PageUp) will be scheduled for orientation during their pre-employment appointment with the HR Service Center. If you have not attended your pre-employment appointment, please call the HR Service Center at (205) 348-7732 to schedule today. Faculty or non-benefits eligible staff members who wish to attend orientation can contact HR Learning and Development to register.
