New Hires

New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation (NEO) is a vital part of the onboarding process!  The UTHSC NEO is provided in a 2-part virtual format.  The first part of NEO will be accessed and viewed via the K@TE learning management system. The 2nd part of NEO will be a follow-up Q&A Zoom with Human Resources Benefits. Please review the videos below prior to the Q&A session. New hires will be sent additional information on when and how to access the NEO training.  All new hires are required to participate in the NEO to ensure timely completion of important IT and Compliance training as well as understanding the insurance and retirement enrollment deadlines.   

If you do not have computer access to view orientation or have general NEO inquiries, please email Human Resources at
