Orientation and Onboarding

LSU Health Sciences Center – New Orleans New Employee Orientation and Onboarding tools are designed to provide new hires with the pertinent information they need to begin working at the Health Sciences Center.

The New Employee Orientation provides detailed information about our organizational structure, policies and procedures, benefits options available to eligible new employees, human resources, payroll, health and safety, ethics and compliance, and our campus assistance program. The objective of the session is to familiarize new employees with LSUHSC-NO’s mission, vision, and values and to provide an opportunity to meet other new colleagues. There are also plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

Where and When to Go

New Employee and Benefits Orientation

All new hires are required to attend New Employee Orientation.  New Employee Orientation is offered every other Monday (or Tuesday if the Monday falls on a holiday) from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 10:30 a.m. Check-in begins at 8:00 a.m., and the program starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. If you are going to be late, please contact your supervisor.

Benefits orientation, which is required for all full-time, benefits-eligible employees, immediately follows new employee orientation.  It begins at 10:30 a.m. and ends at 12 noon.  

New employee orientation is held at 433 Bolivar Street, 8th floor Conference room. The conference room is located to the left upon exiting the elevators.

New Employee Onboarding

Starting a new position can leave employees feeling both excited and anxious. The new employee onboarding tools found on the left-side menu are designed to assist employees with the transition into their new roles.  Although new employee orientation lasts for a half-day, onboarding is a process that takes several months. These tools will assist most Health Sciences Center employees with what they need to get started and stay on an upward projection toward success in their new role.
