Onboarding at Humboldt State University

Onboarding is simply a systematic and comprehensive approach to integrating a new employee with the university and its culture, and providing the new employee the tools and information needed to become a productive member of the campus community. A dedicated group from multiple departments has developed this onboarding framework to help you help our new employees feel welcomed, engaged, and supported.

The goal of the onboarding checklists is to ensure all the roles noted below are working together in order to establish clear and robust communication and promote an effective process. The onboarding process/terms described in this guide are focused on the Staff and Management hiring process. In order to facilitate and encourage communication, when a checklist item may be completed by more than one role, we have noted which roles may share the responsibility.
