The purpose of New Employee Staff Training is to:

  • To ensure that all new employees receive comprehensive information relative to the University of Central Oklahoma's culture, programs and services;
  • To assist in acclimating new employees into the UCO community; and
  • To provide new employees with tools, training, and information necessary for the performance of basic job duties.

To accomplish this, New Employee Staff Training classes are typically held every two weeks. Specific dates can be determined from the Learning Center. The training is tailored according to the duties and responsibilities of each new employee.  Most new employees will complete a full-day of training on their first day at UCO, complete technology training the following week, and then finish the onboarding the following week. 

Employees will gain knowledge on general UCO information, employee benefits, Banner navigation, information technology, and the layout of the campus just to name a few. Following this UCO-specific training, employees are required to complete the same courses that all UCO employees complete annually: Cyber-Security, Safety, and Sexual Misconduct and Gender-Based Discrimination. 

Additional new employee training is provided at the request of the supervisor and can include sessions such as Banner Finance, Requisitions, PCard, Screening Committee, and/or Timekeeper training.
