New Employee Celebration
Congratulations on the hire of your new employee! Human Resources is committed to giving our new employees a great experience and introduction to our university at the attendance of their New Employee Celebration.
All employees will need to report to the HR Service Center on their first day of employment to complete the second section of the I-9 and e-Verify process. Employees attending orientation on their first day can complete this process during this time. If the new employee does not report to orientation on their first day, it is the responsiblity of the employee and the department to ensure the employee reports to the HR Service Center to complete the hiring process.
Employees hired via Taleo: The I-9 will be initiated during the onboarding process.
Employees hired outside of Taleo: Departments will need to submit a request using the link on this page.
Employees hired via Taleo: Registration will be part of the offer gird/onboarding process. Emails will be sent out to the new employee and the department contact once the employee completes the onboarding paperwork and HR confirms the class time.

Time, Date and Location
Orientation is held in McElhinney Hall, room 341. Once your new employee has been approved to attend, he or she will receive an email confirming date, time and parking instructions. The person who registered the employee for orientation will also receive an email to confirm enrollment.
We ask that attendees come to 325 McElhinney at least 30 minutes before their scheduled orientation session to be photographed for their Cougar Card. This will enable us to provide them with their card by the end of the day.
Free parking for new hires will be provided the day of orientation if he or she has been registered for orientation by 12:00 noon on the Thursday preceding the scheduled orientation. Because the UH parking situation is in flux due to construction, the employee's email confirmation will include parking instructions.
ConclusionAt the conclusion of orientation, employees will be given their Cougar Card and directed to the Welcome Center to obtain their parking permit.
Human Resources look forward to welcoming our new employees to the Cougar Pride!
