Employee Onboarding

Request Something DoTS offers > Accounts and Passwords > Other > Employee Onboarding


Some technology for new employees, student employees and professional staff alike, are given automatically. Request this onboarding service to obtain additional technology for the new employee. If the employee needs only one or two additional pieces of the technology puzzle, it might be easier for you to request that technology independently via other services. Links to the services can be found in the "related services" section near the bottom of this page.

Here is a list of technology solutions that you might want ready for the new person's arrival.
✓ = Automatically set up within 24 hours of the person's employment information being entered into the Human Resource System (HRS). You do not need to request these.
❒ = Technology that can be requested
∅ = Technology that is not available for this employee type

Note: Many technologies can only be created/accessed after automated processing occurs based on information entered into HRS. So the timely submittal of paper work to the Human Resources office is critical.

Service Level Agreement

Timing depends on when employee appointment information is entered into the Human Resources System (HRS). Many of these technologies cannot be set up until this step is completed (and overnight processes occur to get the information to the various systems). More involved processes such as computer purchases may take 4-6 weeks to get to campus and be set up with campus resources. Also, certain times of the academic year such as term start-ups, may delay request fulfillment due to lack of available resources during these times. Other technologies listed that are not as work flow intensive or resource intensive are completed within days of HRS appointment entry.
