New Employee Orientation

Human Resources offers weekly orientation sessions for all new WMU employees, both regular and temporary. These sessions are being implemented in conjunction with the University’s move to a Monday hire date for all employees.

On their first day of work, employees are expected to report to the Monday morning orientation session instead of reporting to their department.

Orientation programs are offered each Monday and include important information about working at WMU. If the University is closed on Monday that week’s orientation will be held on Tuesday. New employees and their supervisors will receive an invitation from Human Resources via email.

On orientation Monday, employees wishing to register a vehicle and obtain a parking permit should report to Parking Services between 7:30 and 8 a.m. before the orientation session.

Orientation sessions begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. and last until early afternoon. Lunch will be provided. After the orientation session, employees will report to their departments.

Please contact Human Resources with any questions.
