Onboarding at The University of Michigan

Welcome to the University of Michigan's onboarding resource website for new employees! We are thrilled to have you join our vibrant and diverse community. Whether you are a hiring manager or a new employee, you will find valuable information and tools to support your success at Michigan. Please take some time, over a few weeks, to explore our website and familiarize yourself with the resources available to you. 

Most onboarding resources on this website are for all new employees at U-M, including Michigan Medicine. This does not include faculty, house officers, postdoctoral fellows, student workers, temporary employees and contractors.

It is very important for U-M to have a structured onboarding process for new employees. New employees who participate in a structured onboarding experience are 70% more likely to remain with the organization after three years than those who do not. The cost of replacing a new employee can be three times their salary.


This centralized onboarding program is currently in pilot phase. It will be communicated to the university in FY25. Email [email protected] to:
