Announcing the K-State New Employee Welcome program

Submitted by Human Capital Services

A new orientation program begins on April 10. The K-State New Employee Welcome program will take place on the second Wednesday of every month beginning in April.

Human Capital Services has designed this new program to help new employees feel a sense of belonging from the start of their career at K-State and become familiar with K-State culture, history and the resources available to support their success and complement the electronic onboarding task list they use in PageUp.

Directly tied to Theme 5 of the K-State 2025 strategic plan, this new holistic onboarding program will help support and address the needs of employees and the departments and units they are serving. 

Registration is now open for the K-State New Employee Welcome program. All new employees should sign up to reserve their place in this exciting new program. 

Human Capital Services thanks those who contributed to this initiative through their expertise, insight and feedback:
