New Employee Welcome

Getting employees off to a good start is critical. Becoming familiar with job responsibilities and the environment contributes to high morale and productivity during the initial stages of employment.

This orientation provides an opportunity for new employees to learn about the university, UC Davis Health and medical center, and obtain specific information they need to know within their first month of employment. Topics presented in this program include: 

  • History & Mission
  • Parking & Transportation
  • Campus Culture & Values
  • Building Excellent Service Together
  • Employee Discounts & Resources
  • UC Retirement & Savings
  • Campus & Community Engagement
  • Mandatory Annual Safety Training (MAST)

This training is mandatory for all new employees of UC Davis Health and must be completed within the first 30 days of employment.
