We take great pride in educating and integrating new employees into the BU community. All new regular full- and part-time employees working at least 75 percent time are required to attend the BU Employee Experience orientation. This comprehensive program covers the resources available to new employees and the benefits for which each specific employee is eligible.

The HR representative responsible for hiring a new employee informs him or her of the orientation session date. This information will also be included in the new employee’s employment confirmation letter.
