At Florida Polytechnic University (FPU), faculty are more than classroom educators. They are researchers, mentors, innovators, and key players in elevating the academic environment at Florida’s training ground for the next generation of high-tech business leaders.

Florida Poly is dedicated to providing students with the education, knowledge, and confidence to join the high-tech workforce after graduation. But faculty are also encouraged to pursue their own research projects, both academic and applied in collaboration with STEM companies. Innovation outside of the classroom, in the form of patents and start-ups, is rewarded and celebrated as much as teaching inside the classroom.

Onboarding for new employees consists of a two-part process that begins after the employee has accepted and signed their offer letter, successfully completed their background screening requirements and have completed the pre-hire and hiring approval process in Workday.

Part 1: Once an employee has been hired in Workday, they will receive an email with instructions on how to activate their NETID. Upon activating the NETID, the site will automatically route them to Workday to begin completing all of their new hire compliance onboarding tasks. These tasks will consist of the following:

  • Verifying their legal name and personal contact information.
  • Verifying their submitted government identification.
  • Entering emergency contact information.
  • Completing their Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification
  • Entering direct deposit information and completing their W-4
  • Identification documents must be brought to the office of Human Resources and cannot be expired.

*New employees will need to monitor their Workday inbox closely to complete all tasks in a timely manner.

Part 2: Upon the employee successfully activating their NETID and completing the first set of tasks assigned to them, they will receive an email from the Human Resources Assistant to set up an onboarding meeting to complete their new hire paperwork and receive an invitation to New Hire Orientation. Once all forms are completed and all Workday compliance tasks are done, an email confirmation will be sent to the hiring supervisor and the department administrative assistant to officially provide clearance for the new hire to begin their new role at Florida Polytechnic University.
