New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation (NEO) is a one-day program that welcomes employees, introduces our culture and values, and addresses a variety of regulatory and organizational topics. All employees, regardless of assigned work location, will remain at the campus for the entire orientation. Orientation registration begins at 7:15 a.m. (conference center doors open at 7:15 a.m.) and the program concludes at approximately 4:30 p.m. Please refer to your welcome letter for specific information on the date, location, directions and times of orientation. New employee orientation is usually held at the University Conference Center, located at the Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center campus. Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is a tobacco free campus. Tobacco use is not allowed anywhere on campus.

Breakfast and lunch are provided at orientation. Appropriate dress for orientation is business/casual; no jeans.
