What you need to know for your first day
Welcome to Monash University! There's always lots to deal with on the first day at a new job and we hope the information provided here will help get you through to your second day and is the start of a fulfilling employment experience.
It will take a little time to settle in and feel comfortable so make sure that you don't try to do everything on the first day - you will be absorbing a great deal, meeting new people and learning new things in an unfamiliar environment.
The induction aims to set you on the path to:
Making sure that we pay you
If you haven't already advised the University about your banking and tax details then getting this attended to quickly will ensure that you can be paid. Your work area needs to have sent the Confirmation of Commencement form [word] before Monash HR can start to pay you. Then you will have online access to your employment and pay details through the Employee Self Service (ESS).
Getting your identity card
The Monash staff card is your Staff Identification card, for identifying you as a staff member. It's essential for getting your 10% discount at the Bookshops, access to the library, sporting facilities and for security access in some areas.
Staff Identification cards can be obtained by visiting any of the Student Services Centres located at Berwick, Caulfield, Gippsland, Peninsula or Parkville Campuses between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm on weekdays.
Your Staff Identification card will then be provided for you on the spot. Appointments are not required.
Time for a break - Cafes and shops
By now you will be ready for a break. Ask someone where they suggest for a break and then you can use the map to navigate your way there and back.
Do ask the people around you and get to know them. Monash people are invariably friendly and helpful. They all know what it is like to start a new job but may have forgotten some of the (to them) basic things that you need to know.
Access Monash IT services
All new staff are granted access to a wide range of IT services and resources to support their role at Monash such as email and collaboration tools, wireless, mobile device support and training.
The use of IT facilities and resources of the University must be in accordance with the policy - Information Technology Use Policy - Staff and Other Authorised Users.
