NASA Employee Orientation is intended for any new, transferring, or returning employee that comes to your organization. As a supervisor in our very stable NASA workforce, you may not have a lot of experience in orienting these employees to their new jobs. When you first become aware that you’ll be getting an addition to your staff, we recommend that you first visit the NASA Employee Orientation website. On this site, you will find a variety of resources to assist you, your staff, and your new employee with a successful orientation:

Your continuous participation is critical to the success of the NASA Employee Orientation process.

Managers and Supervisors should actively participate in the employee orientation process by...

  • Monitoring your new employees’ progress through the orientation. (Checklists are available on the website)
  • Participating in or sponsoring employee orientation events, tours, and training
  • Implementing policies, processes, and practices to support the orientation process.

Your Employees should participate in the orientation process by serving as sponsors; assisting new employees within your organization; participating in employee orientation events, tours, and training; and recommending improvements to the employee orientation process.
