New Employee Orientation

The following New Employee Orientation was designed to ensure your smooth transition as a new employee with the State of Delaware. In these modules we have provided you with the foundation, knowledge, tools, and resources to prepare you for your journey through the new hire and benefits enrollment processes.

We have also provided you with instant access to the most up-to-date Merit Rules and policies and procedures, which will provide you with your roadmap to a productive and successful career. In addition, we have provided you with two key documents – the New Hire Checklist and the Health, Dental, and Vision Enrollment/Change Form to help you identify, organize, and submit all the required forms and supporting documentation you will need to complete the new hire process.

This orientation has been organized into separate modules - each addressing important topics you will need to review and familiarize yourself with in order to complete the new hire process. Once you have completed a module, you may go back and review that module again, or you may proceed on to the next module until you have reviewed all the modules. Once you have completed all the modules you will be asked to complete a brief survey about your on-line orientation experience. Please take a moment to complete this survey.

To get started with your new hire orientation, please select the “Welcome - My New Employee Orientation” tile now.
