New Employees

Welcome to Florida State University! We are excited to have you on our team! FSU is a great place to work, and we encourage you to take advantage of all the resources available to you as an employee. This page is designed to help your transition to our campus and provide you with the necessary steps you must complete as a new employee.

The University's New Employee Orientation program is available online for all newly hired employees to provide them with information concerning employee benefits, rules and regulations affecting employment, use of OMNI employee self-service functions for personal information, basic cybersecurity awareness and University operating procedures. Orientation is mandatory for all employees. New Faculty members who complete New Faculty Orientation at the beginning of the academic year are not required to complete the online orientation.

To get started, please select the appropriate link below based on your job classification (Faculty and Staff  or OPS). You will be directed to self-enroll in New Employee Orientation in the Canvas Learning Management System.  Sign in with your Employee FSUID and password to access the course.   Please note, you must be an active employee in order to access NEO.  Once you have completed all requirements, please complete and submit the electronic Certification of Completion & Evaluation of Orientation form. Completions will be credited to your OMNI Training Transcript weekly (typically on non-holiday Mondays).
