UGA Orientation/Onboarding System

Effective May 2, 2012, individuals who are hired at UGA or change benefits eligibility status will complete all required paperwork in the UGA Onboarding System. New hires and employees changing benefits eligibility status will receive an email from or a phone call from UGA Human Resources with instructions for accessing the secure Onboarding System.

Personnel reports

The personnel report for a new hire triggers the email for the Onboarding System. Personnel reports for new hires should be submitted prior to the new hire's start date; ideally, several days (or weeks) prior to the start date. Personnel reports for current employees who change benefits eligibility status should also be submitted several days prior to the actual change-in-status date.

Key information will be pulled from the personnel to create the electronic "packet" of paperwork in the Onboarding System; therefore; accurate information on the personnel is critical to the success of the Onboarding System.
