Supervisor Policies and Procedures Manual

III. Getting a new employee started

D. New employee checklist (NEO)

Supervisors are responsible for the orientation of new employees as outlined in the New Employee Checklist (NEO) checklist.

At Reed College, we want employees to have a smooth transition into their new role and provide them with the knowledge, tools, resources, and support they need in order to be successful.

Orienting a new employee takes a partnership between the supervisor, the employee’s coworkers, Human Resources, and many other departments. By working together we can increase the employee’s satisfaction and retention, encourage strong performance, expedite an employee’s ability to perform and contribute and create a sense of belonging to our community.

Orientation begins as soon as employees begin their employment and continues through at least the first 90 days. It also includes upfront planning and several steps to assist new employees as they transition into their new roles. To assist in this process, a comprehensive checklist / packet has been created.

New Employee Supervisor and Employee Orientation Packet
Supervisors should pick this packet up from Human Resources prior to the employee’s first day. This packet gives the supervisor a detailed list of duties that should be completed before the employees first day, information that must be provided to the employee on their first day of employment, as well as additional information about Reed and the community.

New Employee Welcome Packet
Employees should pick up their packet in Human Resources on their first day.  This packet includes information on their benefits, payroll information, timesheets and procedures.

Once the supervisor and the employee have completed the NEO packet there is an acknowledgement of completion form that will need to be completed and signed. Please return completed form to Human Resources within 30 days of date of hire.   This form will be placed in the employee’s personnel file.
