A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation (including how multiple dimensions of sustainability are addressed):
The UNH Human Resources (HR) Training Coordinator gives a one-day orientation to all new UNH employees. As part of this, UNH HR provides an overview of sustainability efforts across education, research, and practice on campus. The information helps to inform new UNH employees about how to become more involved with sustainability efforts on campus. The information presented highlights resources to staff that will enhance sustainable behavior in the professional setting. Each new UNH employee receives a staff flyer explaining how they can make environmentally and socially responsible choices while working at UNH. They are also given a HealthyUNH reusable water bottle. (http://sustainableunh.unh.edu/sites/sustainableunh.unh.edu/files/images/employeeflyer.pdf). UNHSI staff also are part of new faculty orientation each fall.
