Employee Onboarding begins with Human Resources and takes place in three phases:
Employment and Payroll Forms
The HR Operations Specialist contacts the faculty hire via email with new employment paperwork to complete and return prior to the hire’s start date. Note that faculty hires who have worked for EKU within the last twelve months are not required to complete the employment paperwork but are encouraged to visit HR’s New Employee site to review and update individual forms as needed.
New Faculty Orientation (NFO)
New faculty members will be contacted by a representative in Academic Affairs with information regarding the new faculty orientation session that usually occurs shortly before the beginning of each fall semester. The New Faculty Orientation web page details the information and materials covered in NFO.
Benefits Election Session
The HR Benefits Team emails faculty hires with critical information and paperwork to elect benefits. The Benefits Team attends New Faculty Orientation and is available to answer questions and collect paperwork. Hiring officials or faculty hires with questions regarding benefits and/or benefits paperwork may contact the Benefits Office at 859-622-1324.
The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) contacts faculty hires with instruction for completing three online Workplace trainings.
For questions about Workplace training, contact the OIE at 859-622-8020.
