    dates must be at the beginning of a new pay period (every other Wednesday).

    orientation. Notification of the orientation will be included in the employee’s offer
    letter.

          is clean and ready.

          Arrange for appropriate computer/communication resources.

          Prepare a first day and first week agenda. You do not have to get too detailed,
          but let the new hire know what to expect, especially dates and times of staff
          meetings.

      designated time and location.

          Give the new hire time and access to a computer to use NewHire OnLine to
          complete new hire paperwork BEFORE attending the orientation. Also give the
          new hire time to read through the policy packet. Instructions for using NewHire
