During these two days, you will be welcomed by a member of the Executive Board, meet other new colleagues, get acquainted with our organization culture and value as well as come across with practical information. Although it is difficult to meet each other physically on the campus, we would like to take every opportunity to let our new employees meet each other and be welcomed.
The Introduction Day are organized every two months to welcome all new WUR employees. Please find below the dates for the upcoming events and register accordingly based on your schedule.
