A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):

The Sustainability Office, Campus Recycling and the Center for Civic Engagement participate in several new employee orientation activities including:
University Day - a campus-wide event to kick off the new academic year, which targets programs to employees including introducing them to Sustainability Advocates and events where they can volunteer.
Training Days - a fall event offering training to all employees, specifically targeting new employees and featuring presentations to boost practical knowledge and introduce new employees to new policies and procedures.
The Beaver Community Fair - a fall event that targets all newcomers to the OSU campus but primarily emphasizes student engagement and promoting waste reduction, recycling, and joining sustainability-related clubs and groups.

The Office of Human Resources maintains the New Employee Resources website that contains sustainability information specifically targeted toward new employees. The Sustainability Office maintains content and targeted outreach for new employees. This information is distributed to new employees along with information about benefits and other general information.
