New Employees

Welcome to UNC! We are so happy to have you join our community of bears. 

The list below is made to help walk you through the steps you need to take as a part of the onboarding process. If, at any point, in the process you have questions, please reach out to Human Resources - human.resources@unco.edu or call us at 970-351-2718.

  • Getting Started

    Some general resources to help you on your first day:

  • 1. Benefits

    Within your first week, please reach out to our benefits specialist to ensure you are properly enrolled in UNC's health insurance and retirement plans. 

    Payroll - Visit Payroll's website to setup tax deductions, direct deposit, and to learn general information about pay periods. 


  • 2. Orientation

    Our New Hire Orientation has been split into two pieces. A virtual session that employees can complete at their own pace, and an in-person session to answer questions and receive a more in-depth experience. 


    • You will receive an invitation (via your UNCO email address) to complete the online portion of orientation. The email will take you to Cornerstone. You will find the orientation in your ACTION ITEMS. **If you don't receive your invitation, please notify your supervisor and/or reach out to us. 


    • UNC will host an EMPLOYEE FAIR 3x per year. This is a great place to meet people across campus, learn about benefits available to employees, and participate in raffles. Events take place in the UC Panorama Room.
