Congratulations on your new position! We’re excited that you’re joining Berkeley Haas and will be bringing your talent, skills and energy to the important work we do here.

Your first few months at Haas are naturally a time of learning and understanding your job, your unit, and how the University works. It’s also a time to explore and learn about all the benefits and rewards available to you because of your affiliation with this world-class university. We’ve outlined below an overview of the onboarding process at Berkeley Haas. The information on this site can serve as an overview.  Stay tuned for more information from our Staff Human Resources team, which will provide more detail, resources, and support.

One resource to help you to get connected is the #haas-connections! channel in Slack.  Joining this will pair you up for regular introductions to your participating colleagues. You don’t need to do much else other than accept a time to meet, but here are a few tips:

  1. Donut will message you via Slack when you have new introduction. If you don’t use Slack very often, you can setup email notifications so you never miss a match.
  2. Add your “Favorite Things” to get the conversation started.  Donut will send you a message about this automatically.
  3. Make meetings even easier to schedule by integrating your Google Calendar. Donut will prompt you for this, but if you need help, the steps are here.
  4. Donut will ask you to “Say Something Nice” after your first meeting, Please do!

Looking forward to meeting up with all of you!

Welcome to Berkeley Haas!
