A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:

Stanford's new employee orientation process (Onboarding@Staford) consists of a half-day training program and a plethora of web resources and support organizations, including a monthly electronic newsletter specifically targeted to new hires. Sustainability is a component of the new hire experience through the following:

-- explicit slides dedicated to Stanford's recycling programs during the training presentation
-- a handout for all new employees during training that highlights Stanford's sustainability programs and accomplishments
-- inclusion on the new hire website in the discussion of community values
-- advertisement of Cardinal Green sustainability campaigns through the new hire electronic newsletter
