New Employee Orientation 2.0!

New Employee Orientation has undergone a redesign and a relocation!

New Employee Orientation is now held in the Recreation and Wellness Center on the second and fourth Monday of the month.  In addition to UMSL History, Benefits and Policies, we have added the following:

  • tour of the Recreation and Wellness Center
  • a welcome by Beth Eckelkamp who talks about everyone’s role in creating a sense of belonging on a student-centered campus.
  • a tour the Millennium Student Center and receive their ID Card.
  • a welcome kit including Rec Center gifts, a Sodexo credit of $15, and an UMSL welcome gift.

HR also now follows up after 30-days to ensure each employee has enrolled in benefits and is adjusting to their new position.
