New Staff

The University's Human Resources Office has developed "on-boarding toolkits" for hiring managers to help smooth the transition to working at Hopkins.  The downloadable PDF can be found by clicking here.  Hiring Managers should also encourage their new employee(s) to review the Resources for New Employees information on the Human Resources website.

In addition to ensuring that new employees complete all of the University-wide requirements (completion of I-9 and tax forms, attending Orientation, etc.), hiring managers must be sure to allow time for the new employee to obtain a J-Card (in Garland Hall) and make parking arrangements, if applicable, at the Parking Office in the South Garage.  If appropriate, hiring managers will need to issue keys to the new employee per departmental policies regarding which space(s) the employee must have access to.  If your department has mailboxes for staff, hiring managers should ensure that the new employee as a mailbox assigned to him/her and they know to check it frequently.  If your department has standards for answering the telephone or using email, be sure to communicate these to your new employee.

Lastly, hiring managers should arrange to give the new employee a tour of the department or building where they will be working.  It may also be appropriate to introduce the new employee to colleagues who work in associated departments or programs.  If the employee is new to the Homewood Campus, they should also be given a map of the campus.

Welcome to KSAS!  New employees are encouraged to review the Resources for New Employees information on the Human Resources website in addition to familiarizing themselves with the information posted on the "Current Employees" section of that same site:  Time and Absence Management, On the Job, and Leaving JHU.

New employees should be sure to obtain a J-Card (the University's ID badge) at the J-Card office in Garland Hall.  If you drive to work and plan to utilize one of the University's parking lots, you will need to make arrangements for parking lot access at the Parking Office, which is located in the South Garage under Mason Hall.  Your hiring manager or supervisor should give you time to accomplish these tasks on your first day on the job.

If your position requires that you have keys to access the space(s) in which you will be working, you will need to obtain keys from your department's key coordinator.  Also, be sure that you check your departmental mailbox frequently, if one has been assigned to you.

Your department may have standards for how to answer the telephone or use email for communicating with members of the department.  Your hiring manager should brief you on these protocols.
