|As a new employee, you are responsible for being an active participant in your own onboarding. Onboarding works best when it is a two-way process. The organization provides information, resources and equipment; you ought to be engaged and ready to embrace new ways of doing work and adapt to new office norms and work styles.
Phase One of the onboarding process includes the period of time after you have received your final offer and accepted the job, and before the first day of your employment. During this time, the Human Resources Office (HRO) sends paperwork and communicates logistical information. Your new Supervisor will be using this time to assign you an Onboarding Sponsor and to prepare your workspace for your arrival.
