New Hires

Welcome to JHU! As a new employee, you’ll need to take several important steps to ensure a smooth and successful start.

Complete employment forms: Within three days of your first day of work, you’ll need to complete several forms, including the federally required Form 1-9, which provides evidence of identity and employment authorization to work in the United States.

Enroll in health and life benefits: Within two weeks of your hire date, you’ll get a benefits notification email. You’ll then have 30 days to make enrollment decisions for health and life insurance (but don’t worry, you’re covered from your date of hire).

Set up your retirement plan: Most full-time employees are eligible to participate in one of our retirement plans. Head to our myChoices Retirement welcome page to learn more about available plans and get started enrolling.

Explore our voluntary benefits: As an employee of JHU, you have access to a full menu of optional benefits and programs. Be sure to check out our family programs, support programs, wellness programs, tuition assistance, and other insurance and benefits.

Get on board: As part of our onboarding process, we offer new employees in-person orientation sessions and online orientation to help you better understand all our offerings, policies, and practices.

With 10 campuses and more than 17,000 employees, JHU is a big place. Get information for new employees on getting oriented and staying connected.
