Onboarding for new WUR employees

The Executive Board welcomes every new colleague. There is a WUR-wide programme with the following objectives: connection, information about the WUR strategy and familiarisation with the WUR processes.

The direct colleagues offer a warm welcome from the starting date. Wageningen University & Research also organises a general introduction on Campus with ‘connection’ as the main theme. The so called “Welcome at WUR-day”. It is half a day (13:00– 17:00) and the program is as follows:

13:00 – 13:30 Walk In
13:30 – 14:00 Opening by a member of the Executive Board or by a Director
14:00 – 14:45 Presentation on a research theme or other interesting topic
14:45 – 15:00 Short break
15:00 – 16:00 Guided Tour by one of our students over the Campus
16:00 – 17:00 Networking event (“borrel”); opportunity to get to know your new colleagues
