New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation (NEO) is offered to new faculty, staff and managers. NEO serves as an introduction to the university, provides an overview of your employment rights, and summarizes benefits available to you.

Staff and Managers

After you begin your new position, Staff Human Resources will send you an introductory email and calendar invite regarding your New Employee Orientation, also known as the CSULB Overview for New Staff and MPPs.

New employees are provided with a Benefits Informational Session, New Employee Technology Orientation, and New Employee Safety Training

For represented employees, please see this message from your union. If you are unsure of your union affiliation, please contact Staff Human Resources at We’d be more than happy to assist you.


New Employee Orientation for tenure/tenure-track faculty is scheduled annually at the beginning of the fall semester. Please contact Faculty Affairs at for the date and time of the next orientation.
