New Orientations & Onboarding Site Launched

New Orientations & Onboarding Site Launched

We have launched our new Orientation site for staff and faculty. This new site focuses on helping new employees navigate through the essentials of starting, their first week, their first month and looking forward to success. We also have a new look and feel that we hope will enliven the onboarding experience.

Check out the new site at https://www.hr.ubc.ca/orientation/.


This new site dovetails in with our revitalized in-person orientation program at the Vancouver campus. If you’re interested in learning more, please contact workplace.orientations@ubc.ca.
