NEO Gone Virtual

Welcome to New Employee Orientation (NEO) Gone Virtual!

NEO Gone Virtual was developed in response to the impact COVID-19 is having on our campus. We created this program to make sure you, as a new employee, have access to the trainings and information you need to succeed at UNCW. This suite of training and resources are available to you virtually, meaning you can complete them now rather than later.


As a new employee, you are typically required to attend an all-day New Employee Orientation (NEO), which incorporates several important training sessions. NEO is also designed to answer any questions you have, introduce you to the perks and benefits of being a UNCW employee, and set you up for success in your new job! Unfortunately, because of social distancing, we are unable to host our typical in-person NEO at this time.

Instead, we ask that you complete NEO Gone Virtual, which includes required safety training, a virtual welcome seminar, connecting with other new employees, and accessing additional new employee resources. After completing all required components of NEO Gone Virtual, you will receive a certificate of completion from the Onboaring Center, certifying that you have successfully completed all onboarding requirements at UNCW. 


There are four required components to NEO Gone Virtual: (1) Online Safety Training, (2) New Employee Welcome Seminar, (3) Virtual Passport, and (4) New Employee Teams Community. Click on the images below to learn more about each requirement and get started!
