A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):
The Sustainability Manager conducted the Orientation Training described below, however this was put on hold in May 2018 until a new manager was on-boarded in order to continue this programming. We anticipate that the training will be offered in September 2020 depending on COVID-19 restrictions.

The Sustainability Office provides a 10 minute presentation during New Employee Orientation workshops. This presentation provides an overview of what the sustainability office does and how we are working to address multiple dimensions of sustainability which are integrated in our operations, academics, and engagement. We tackle and discuss topics such energy, waste, water, equity, etc. The presentation also provides resources and information on how employees can participate in sustainability on campus. The website and contact information are provided to each new employee as well as relevant outlets to access further resources (i.e. how we communicate about events, our twitter page, etc.).

In addition the link to the sustainability website is available under the Work Life section of the HR website as a resource to new employees when they are familiarizing themselves with their responsibilities as a Ryerson employee.
