Onboarding

The ETS Onboarding program is a service provided by ETS for new IT Employees to help prepare them for their position and set them up for success. The program is customized to the role of the Employee, going into detail only where the Employee’s responsibilities require it, and otherwise just being an overview of services provided of relevance to the Employee.

Onboarding should take place within the first two work weeks of the new hires start date, scheduled around the Employee and ETS’ availability (and through Skype if preferred). The Onboarding program provides information on the following:

  • IT Organizational structure (including UTO, ETS, and Deskside IT Teams)
  • IT “Code of Ethics” at ASU
  • Services and roles that ETS, UTO, and Deskside IT Teams provide
  • Responsibilities of the Employee with using these services
  • Physical and system based access

The Employee will meet with representatives from multiple ETS Teams during the onboarding process. The following is a short summary of ETS’s Teams and the services they provide:
