Employment and Benefits Orientations

Employee and Benefits Orientation 250

  • New Staff receive information about which of these orientation sessions they need to attend, in their new hire offer letter (email) from Human Resources.
  • New Faculty should attend the Benefits Orientation, as described below.
  • The Academic Provost’s Office also conducts orientations for new faculty, along with other new-faculty workshops and events throughout the year. Please go to the Provost's page for details.

Employment Orientation for New Staff

Ali Tabor (Professional Development Coordinator) conducts the New Staff Employment Orientation, introducing new staff to important university policies, programs, and websites. Ali also explains the forms and processes new staff need to complete within the first few days and weeks of their employment.

Before attending the University Welcome session, please watch The Olive video below and a required video about Title IX. The Olive video is an animation based on the life of the founder of the Jesuit order, St. Ignatius of Loyola. It was written, produced, and narrated by Jason Kapell, of the Fairfield University Media Center.

Benefits Orientation for Benefits-Eligible Faculty and Staff

The Benefits Orientation provides benefits-eligible faculty and staff with an overview of all benefits options available at the university. Please note, benefit enrollment forms must be submitted to Human Resources within 30 days of your hire date. The benefits orientation has been designed to ensure new faculty and staff have enough information to make informed decisions about the coverage they need.

Important Note:

  • New staff and benefits-eligible faculty are encouraged to attend their orientations during the first week of their employment, so they have the information they need to submit their benefits enrollment paperwork (if applicable) within 30 days of their hire date.
