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

During new employee orientation all new employees go through the Worker "Right to Know" training that infuses a number of sustainability topics into the course. Additionally, employee resources such as the Employee Assistance Program and the services provided by the Wellness Recreation Center are covered. Employees also have a training lunch at the dining centers where they are exposed to tray free dining and a number of educational opportunities in the dining center.
