New Employee Orientation

Announcement regarding UW Medicine’s New Employee Orientation (NEO)
UW Medicine Organization Development and Training, together with our HR partners, is pleased to announce additional changes to UW Medicine’s New Employee Orientation (NEO) starting January 11, 2021.  In addition to moving NEO to Mondays, we have re-designed it to be delivered as a hybrid experience: UW Medicine Day One.

Beginning in January, new employees will come to the UW Tower in the morning to complete essential tasks including I-9 verification, getting photos taken for badges, and picking up a NEO guide. They will then return home (or go to another preferred location of their choosing) to attend the NEO content delivery portion of the day virtually via Zoom webinar in the afternoon.  New employees will continue to be compensated for a full day for their participation in UW Medicine Day One/NEO.

New Employee Orientation (NEO)

The New Employee Orientation (NEO) is the means by which new employees are welcomed and introduced to the organization’s mission, vision, and values. This program assists new employees in gaining a sense of who we are and what it means to be a member of the UW Medicine Health System, in addition to fulfilling many of our compliance related training requirements. Individuals will be scheduled to attend NEO, which should coincide with their first day of employment.
