New Employee Orientation

NEO covers the history and mission of our great institution, as well as our goals, policies, and culture. It also covers the benefits and perks of being a part of UNCG! This is a great networking opportunity in a welcoming environment. The more you know, the more you benefit!

NEO is mandatory for all new employees. An official invitation letter is included in the offer of employment.

The in-person portion of NEO occurs on Mondays, except when a University holiday falls on a Monday; then orientation will move to the next business day. New employees will complete the online portion of orientation within 30 days of hire.

What to Expect

After a morning of informative and engaging presentations, new employees will enjoy a full lunch at our Fountain View Dining Hall. Please dress comfortably as there will be a mini-campus tour on the way to lunch. After lunch, you will receive your Spartan ID Card.
