Orientation 101

The Human Resources department has a fun and exciting job of helping all of you get your bearings this Summer. We’ve prepared a set of online orientation activities to be held through Zoom, including Induction Days (Fast Track and non-Fast Track), a virtual version of our citywide Amazing Race-esque Treasure Hunt, and a Cocktail Reception to let you break the ice, get your plans sorted, and socialise a bit.
