UITS Human Resources

Onboarding

Is it your first day on the job? Still trying to learn the ins and outs of UITS? Learn how to hit the ground running at your new workplace.

Training for new employees

Orientation
The UITS orientation lays the foundation for a successful career. A UITS HR Business Partner will contact you to schedule an orientation before your first day of employment.

New employees will be invited to a campus-wide orientation shortly after their first day. Visit the UHR Employment website for additional information.

Buddy Program
Some new employees may use UITS’ Buddy Program, wherein a manager assigns the new employee to a coworker—or “Buddy”—to act as a mentor and help the new hire integrate effectively with the workplace. The Buddy's role is flexible, and the manager must decide how the Buddy Program will work for your new hire and existing team.

Managers and Buddies should use the following guides to ensure the new employee is being acquainted with all aspects of UITS:

Accounts and services

Creating an IU account
IU students, faculty, staff, affiliates, and guests can use the Account Management Service to create and manage their computing accounts and passphrases.

Employee Center
Use the employee center to access and update personal information, as well as payroll, tax, and benefit information.

CrimsonCard
The IU CrimsonCard is the official photo ID card for all campuses.  It provides essential university services as well as secure entry to campus buildings.  Employees may obtain a CrimsonCard from any campus card services location.

Computer setup & technical support
Executive and Internal Technology Support (EITS) manages inter-campus technical support 24 hours per day, 365 days per year for IU Bloomington and IUPUI UITS staff.

Parking
IU employees can purchase a parking permit through IU Parking Operations online or by visiting one of the on-campus offices. They have the option to pay in full or using a monthly pre-tax deduction on their paycheck.

New UITS employees will need to complete several steps once they begin work, partly with the help of their manager or supervisor.
