New Employee In-person Orientation

The New Employee Orientation is a great way to connect to campus culture, colleagues and information as new employees prepare for a rewarding career at Cal Poly. The orientation provides new employees with important information and connections that will help them thrive — including information about Cal Poly’s mission and values, organizational structure, and benefits and services. Information will be provided by the experts in each area — people who are passionate about helping new employees as they start their new career here.

New benefit-eligible employees will be invited to an upcoming New Employee Orientation, typically held on the first Monday of the month. The New Employee Orientation begins with a light breakfast Welcome Reception between 9 – 9:30 am. The orientation program begins at 9:30 and wraps up around 4pm and includes a light lunch. Supervisors are encouraged to attend both the Welcome Reception and lunch. For more information about the in-person New Employee Orientation, please contact or 805-756-7478.
